of Margaret's blessed Dress Up 2010 series.
Are you taking part? Are you visiting and going gaga over the incredible dresses that the participants are coming up with? Silly me. Of course you are.
Margaret has asked us to put on display the wardrobes/closets/containers in which we are gathering our precious collections this month and even though mine is nothing fancy, here it is.
and the interior:
See? Nothing special. But it works for me.
And here is my November dress:
I made this is October, thinking it was November, but it wasn't, so I had to then make an October dress, cus this just wasn't Halloweeney enough and after all, every girl needs something Halloweeney for the assorted "do's" that take place around that fantabulously spooky month. "Do" was my mother's word. Isn't it a hoot? "Do what?"
So then I pull this out and look at it and ask myself, "What the heck was I thinking the day I made this, it looks, um, somewhat, er, retarded.
THAT'S because for some bizarre reason, I attatched a cape to it. (Huh?) Oh My Gosh. How embarrassing it would have been if I had shown you that. WHO wears a cape in November, I ask you?
(Well, who wears a cape anytime?) So I pulled it off. And this is what is left.
The paper was embossed, and I cut the sheath pattern free hand (including the dumb cape lol). The belt is some paper ribbon I have, the buckle is a sticker, on the left shoulder is a bead which attached the now-gone cape, the sleeves are glittered and the leaves are made from a paper bag, glossy accents and more glitter. Gotta love glitter. I added a few pearls at the end. And then ripped off the cape yesterday. There is is. My November cape-less dress. You can find many more, maybe even some with capes here, all of them perfect for autumn "do's".
Thanks for looking!
