Description

This is the Colette Patterns number 1017-Peony dress. Fun to wear Peony made out of an elegant Halloween fabric (I promise it is possible!) A beautiful burgundy with striped gradations to red and covered with gold spiderwebs and spiders and bats. I also added gold lame piping to the sleeves and the belt. You can see many more pictures and get the full review by visiting my blog post here.

Material Notes

I made this completely out of quilting cotton from Joann’s….I have saved this Halloween print for so many years waiting for the exact right dress! Well, here it is!
