I loved it but it started to get a little beat up from all the moving around. When Margaret said we could show off our wardrobes this month I thought about changing it somehow. Then I saw my friend Marfi's gorgeous cabinet and the room she made for her gypsy doll and I was absolutely inspired.
I remembered this mini trunk that my son and I usually use for our Harry Potter events. It reminded me of the old steamer trunks people would take on travels to exotic places. It was just the right size so I turned it on it's side...
I brought over the mirror from my shoebox and also made a little chair to go with the other mirror. The black and white wallpaper and chair cover are Halloween napkins left from my tea party and the chandelier is one of my earrings that I added more dangly bits too. The lace trim valances are hanging from dowels with jump rings like cafe curtains.
My 2 October dresses finally got proper hangers and joined the others.
Silly me. I squeezed in all the other dresses but forgot to turn them around so only the October dresses were facing the right way. Oh well.
And here is my November dress. November to me is about the quiet comfort of late Autumn. After the excitement of October I can just enjoy the colors and leaves, listen to classical music and finally begin to bring some of my fuzzy sweaters and scarves out of hiding.
I had so much fun making my little wardrobe. Afterwards I couldn't help studying it and thinking how I'd love a full sized one to play in lol! I think this dress is also one of my favorites. And now we have just one dress left to go.
Big thank yous go to Linda who sent me the lovely laminated leaves, Angelique for the beautiful laces, paper flowers and vintage sheet music, Marfi for the awesome mirror frame. And Melinda, one of my Great ATC Witch Swaps for the colorful yarn.
