A Novelty Print Halloween Dress

October 25, 2013

Halloween is almost upon us! In honor of the day, I stitched up a novelty print dress inspired by this vintage ad.

Vintage Vogue 8811

I used Vintage Vogue 8811 for the pattern. It matched the silhouette of the dress from the ad just perfectly! The spiderweb fabric is completely sheer and tulle-like in texture, so I underlined the dress with a black cotton.

I love dressing up for Halloween, but there are only so many places/events where you can wear a costume. A spooktacular frock? I can wear it all month long!

See more photos, including a vintage bat button I used at the back neck slitĀ and a close-up of my novelty brooch!

  1. I love it!!! As soon as I saw the ad I thought “well that’s Vogue 8811.” That may be my favorite VV of all time, it’s so simple and great for showcasing a novelty print as you have done here. You look fantastic!
