We've come to the end of a marvelous year of fancy dresses, a la Margaret of Dress-Up 2010 fame.
I'm so sorry to see it end. BUT. I'm thinking someone may carry on for Margaret, possibly. Margaret deserves a life, after all. tee hee
Here is my dress for December:
It's a wedding dress. The rest of the Dress-Up world created lovely wedding dresses in June, of course. Me, I'm a little slow on the uptake.
I found a vintage pillowcase at the thrift store and I (yes, I know, I'm so ashamed) cut it up for this dress. If I can lose about 100 pounds, I can sew myself a nice little bolero out of the rest. When that happens, you'll be the first to know.
Here's a closer look:
OBVIOUSLY, there is a lovely vintage corset covered with lace and pearls which the bride will wear underneath this-it even has a push-up bra and garter belt with Swarovski crystals attached. But you can't see it. It's private.
I'm about the last person to post this month's dress, but if you head over to aliceandcamilla, you'll see why it's been such a delight and an honour to be a part of this yearlong event.
Hats off to Margaret for her super idea and all her hard work hosting this!
