Caught in your web

Who doesn't like cobwebs, especially on their clothes? I've wanted to make a cobweb print day dress ever since I made my ridiculously ott one for Halloween. I used a Butterick pattern that was supposed to be easy but I really struggle following patterns as I have a short attention span! Anyway I don't think she turned out to bad, I also made a little belt and turban to match and she was worn on Valentines Day, to Tesco as I'm a real classy gal.
It's not just the lighting, I have red hair now, and like half the length it was, still think I will go back to black eventually but I'm enjoying the change for awhile, if anyone could recommend tips for brows and ginger hair I still keep doing mine black aha. 












My bruised Valentine fell off his bicycle hence the gnarley bruise - he's okay!

  1. I'm very impressed; that dress looks wonderful! I've never had much patience when it comes to following patterns so I always marvel at those who manage to complete them! Your hair looks SO great red X

  3. You're looking gorgeous with your new hair colour. Black eyebrows look pretty good to me.
    I start off following the pattern but usually end up doing my own thing in the end. xxx

  4. Wow that is really gorgeous, I love the added turban its perfect, especially with your lovely red hair! I have made up that dress pattern and can remember it being a right bugger to sew as the instructions are a bit vague, so its not just you, though I have a very short concentration span myself! xx
