I found this really cool pink shiny paper the other day and it pushed my plan to make a wedding dress right out of my brain. That will have to wait yet another month. AGAIN. We may be having a winter wedding. I cuttlebugged it (I love my cuttlebug), then added a little apron and trims to the puffy sleeves with glitter. Why an apron, you ask? Because she is canning beans. Why would she wear such a fancy dress to do that, you ask? Because she is a housewife from the 50's and ALL the housewives from the 50's wore dresses to do EVERYTHING. And earrings. And pumps. Just watch Mad Men. You'll see.
Rick Rack on the neckline and hem and a shiny heart at the bosom. (Isn't that a great word "bosom"? So much nicer than "boobies".) Funky ugly ribbon I bought years ago and immediately regretted, along the EMPIRE waist. Yes, Virginia, it is a real empire waist. Stacy from What Not To Wear would be pleased. A bead from my way-too-big bead stash and then a dragonfly from K&Co. to complete it. I remember the maker of the dragonfly, I am SO proud of myself. Those who know me will be impressed too.
We have four more months to go-here are the ones I've made so far. I love this challenge. and I love Margaret for conceiving of it and hosting it all. I hope you'll go see here and tell her I sent you.
