Sunday Spotlight: Spider Web


As it happens to be the week before Halloween all of a sudden, I though today we could take a look at some lovely vintage pieces with a spider web motif! Though I personally like the look of spider webs (not spiders themselves though, eek!) year round, October is undoubtedly the best time to wear such a fun Halloween-esk design. It seems the motif was popular in times past too, and what I wouldn't give to have the 1920's lace dress below! It's a good thing I have two spider web projects coming up in my to-sew projects list shortly, I only hope I can get them finished in time to wear them before Halloween :)















Click on each photo to be taken to it's source. Isn't that last "poodle" skirt with the full spider's web so excellent? What a great project idea, I'd like one in black wool with the spiders web done in sequins (or maybe on black velvet!). How do you all feel about donning a spider web design? Do you have any more Halloween worthy novelty prints in your wardrobe?

  4. These are lovely. I really like the dress with the orange webs and all the ones with beaded webs. They would make a great project.
