My March Dress
Here is my little dress for March Dress Up 2010's month of March. I am so enjoying visiting other artists' blogs and seeing their creations, there is such variety and are so many wonderful dresses! Mine is made from a curtain sample I got somewhere. If I remember correctly it was at a thrift store. Isn't it wonderful how some people just won't throw anything out? Although our weather is warm right now, I guarantee we're going to get slammed before the month of March is done. We always do. Usually we get such a storm, that the schools and businesses close. With that in mind, I felt I should make a warm dress, rather than the diaphemous beauties I am admiring at other's blogs. It's also for a little girl who is a tad "chubby" shall we say? I wouldn't call her "fat" (who in their right mind WOULD call a girl "fat"?), just "comfortable". She likes her sweets.
The lace apron is made out of a leftover from one of my own little girl's nighties. She's 19 now, so that tells you how long I keep things around. The skirt is trimmed with plastic ribbon (Maya road, I think), and around the waist you'll find some more little pieces of ribbon I've had forever. The flower is a metal brad. A tiny piece of felt ribbon and button finish it off. She'll have to wear a coat of course, if she goes outside, but this wool dress will keep the cold wind from blowing up her sleeves and skirt. I know she'll wear this to the bakery and look very stylish indeed.
