Today, I’m bringing you a decorative lacing tutorial, perfect for adding a little drama to your wardrobe. We used it on our Waspie Corset pattern, but you can get creative with it. It’s perfect for pulling together a DIY Halloween look, or add lacing to everything in your closet––who are we to stop you?

I’m so thrilled to present the most perfectly macabre Morticia Gown. If you’re anything like me, you think that Carolyn Jones in the original Addams Family was the epitome of dark glamour. Perfect for nights of Halloween mischief (or every day for you goths out there!) we’ve expanded the Bryant Gown into something perfectly morbid.
Circle skirts were staples of ‘50s fashion, and we know you’ll love this versatile and feminine piece. Our free circle skirt pattern has the perfect vintage length, side seam pockets, a beautiful lapped zipper, and waistband with hook-and-bar closure. It’s a great beginner project, but also works great as an essential staple for more advanced sewists. (Who doesn’t need one in every color in their wardrobe?)
