I love Halloween. it's my favorite holiday. but sometimes it just isn't acceptable to wear a Halloween costume around. so... I thought I'd try a classier approach to celebrating Halloween. I took a needle and some silver thread to an old black blouse and here's what I got.

Here are some close-ups.

First I did the right side of the blouse with a large spider-web. I wanted it to stretch over the sides and not directly over the front. I can't decide if I want to add another ring on the outside of it.

And then, because it looked nekkid still and I spotted someone very clever on here did something really cool on her blouse, I emulated it on the left collar. (I cant remember her name or the exact thread... I'll edit it in later when I find it)

Here's a shot of the back. It's plain except for the extended web. I've been thinking about adding a little spiderweb on the left shoulder, behind the sleeves.

sorry if they're hard to see. Flash + silver string = only half of the silver showing up.

thanks for looking! Smiley

That web looks really realistic!  Good job.  Maybe you can post a photo of you in it and we could see better.

I love planning parties - come to me if you need any ideas!

Wow, I absolutely love the way this turned out.  I especially love the collar, such a nice detail.  I've wanted to do something like this for a while, subtly change a work shirt so that it would satisfy my need for Halloween, but that I could wear even to meetings.  This is perfect.  I'll add it to my list of must try projects!

hitting this rocks!
