DRESS IT UP - MAY

Gosh...a big thank you to all who came to look at my shelves the last couple of days, didn't know my shleves were that interesting.  Thank you to those who commented about the dolls house...I will leave it as it is for now :)

On to blogging now...

Here is my entry for the DRESS IT UP - MAY challenge.  I have 5 of these now and they look great together!  You really should pop over to Margarets to see the gorgeous one she has done!  Anyhoooo...I tried to stay away from fabric this time and resist the urge to make it into a wedding dress hahaha!  But there is a bit of old frilly green stuff rescued from somewhere...very old & looks like organza edging.


These are such fun things to do, so completely different!  Thank you for looking today, HUGS XXX

I enjoy the bodice and the way the straps are made. That is very clever. That edging is gorgeous, and those flowers scream Spring. It's so sparkly and adorable.

You are such a sweetie, that I want you to know I'm featuring your blog Sunday (May 9) as my blog of the day. Sundays are special because you get a post devoted entirely to the blog of the day.

Again, love that dress! Kinda wish my waist was that small (grin).

I love everything about your gorgeous dress Karen!
I love the way your dresses are real dressmakers dresses with lots of true to life touches! Yay, go Karen!!
Another beautiful use of those Dulcie whats-her-face stamps - grr me memory box is poor today, in fact there are some days when I feel like old frilly green stuff, but more like what you would find in the bottom of the fridge, at the back...
