In dreams...

Well, maybe one day I will have fully working internet and a computer that doesn't shut down and never work again, but I shall believe technology's stability when I see it.  In the meantime I have a log of blogs to read and a lot of stitching and knitting to get photographed.

Summer project

As the dread sunshine does creep through the sky
So the goth crowd roll their eyes, and apply
A suitable layer of the protective cream
Praise be to the gods of the magic sun screen!

OK, so that's a bit of an exaggeration, but I am not a great fan of too much sun. However, in the spirit of keeping it spooky-but-summery this pattern is up for consideration.
Probably in black, though.
That is surely the rule!

Belated: Hallowe'en

Huzzah for Halloween!
Decided to work the Dia de los Muertos vibe with my peasant outift and bead-studded mask.
Just need to get hold of the photos!

Dead-Head bowling and ghastly gastromomy were the order of the day.

Keep putting off taking the decorations down...

Other people's UFOs

A month or two ago, I bought some chunks of fabric from a charity shop. I only got around to looking at them recently and found one piece was a partly made skirt.

There were marks for darts in the top & a zip attached, so I took on the project and finished it - sticking to the original marks as near as possible (but still making it fit!).

The final item is a slightly a-line skirt - enough of a dome for a stiff petticoat - though the waist is a little stick-out-y, a corset soon fixes the problem.

Who made the original? Why did it never get finished?

I wonder if I wear it out in town if someone will ID it as their own...?

September pt3

Also made & used was a jersey shrug in black, a red scarf and a black scarf, a green shawl, and a re-styled gothy skull dress - the bust-part at the top was a funny shape, so I cut it off and replaced it with the same jersey I used for the shrug, then re-attached the straps.

The dress pic is below.
