june paper dress

It's time to add another paper dress to my little wardrobe for the Dress Up 2010 challenge at Alice and Camilla.




For June I made an Alice in Wonderland inspired dress.
I imagined wearing it to the upcoming Mad Tea Party.

 



I used  blue distressed style cardstock, pieces of a
vintage lace doillie, buttons and a flower graphic I cut from
scrapbook paper. All ready for the tea party!


And here is my dress for March.




I made this party dress in honor of Spring 
and also my birthday which is in  March.

I used a pretty napkin and crumpled and glued it onto
a fuschia damask design paper dress.

I gathered the waistline so the skirt would poof up.
Finished with gold trim and millinery flower.




Into the wardrobe they go to join April and May!

So darling!!! You won't believe this - but yesterday I thought, "hmmm.. I don't think Anna has showed us any dresses in a while..." YEA! Love them all.

They are both really pretty - the first does have an Alice feel to it & the second a little 50s party dress - lovely

That June tea party dress is adorable. Looks like just the thing to wear to high tea. And when I saw the March dress, I thought of a 50s dress that a housewife would wear when she and her hubby were entertaining on a summer day by the barbeque or pool. I've seen pictures of dresses from that era that I swear look similar. Love these two, that's for sure.

Superb Anna! if you're having a tea party wearing a dress like that then can I come please???!! I love it so much, the colour is fab and the tiny doillie details are inspired.
Your second dress has a wonderful texture too it and it's such a pretty colour choice.
You have a very beautiful blog! Margaret

Beautiful, both of them! I love the Alice one and the doilies - just right for the tea party.

Happy waybelated birthday!

I can easily picture the blue dress on Alice. The use of the doilies was absolutely perfect! That is going to be such an adorable display once you've finished. I admit I'm tempted into copying and making my own little wardrobe, I'm adoring the dresses so much.

The pink is my favorite. Only because I so want to wear it. I absolutely adore it. Aaaaaand I love, love, love how you've added your collage piece to your blog's title! Soooo whimsical and colorful! No one can come to your blog and not smile with all those colors and kitties. Not even the Grinch!
