Yipee! I'm finally caught up this month and actually have 8 dresses for 8 months.
It's time for the Dress Up Challenge at Alice and Camilla.
I can't believe it's August already! Where did the year go?
This is January, my last catch up dress.
I imagined a frost and sparkle covered gown
for a fabulous Winter Ball. I painted an antique ivory wash on the paper
but it isn't showing up that well on the pic. Maybe you can see
it better on your monitor. The bodice is made from silver glitter
paper and I added more glitter and frost to the
neckline, hem and on the velvet pansy.
I love books and libraries. The older the better.
During the summer break my son and I try to visit as many libraries
and bookstores as we can and discover new ones we
haven't been to before. I was also a school librarian for a few years.
So I thought for August I would make a dress with a library theme.
I used text from an old book, an image of Charlotte Bronte, another image
of an old library card and pieces of vintage lace. The antique book
is one of my treasured copies of poems by Elizabeth Barrett Browning.
My little wardrobe is filling up! I can't wait to do the Fall
dresses so come back and check for September.
