DRESS IT UP - November

November already???  Goodness me!!!!!  Here is my dress...


Now during the November of my childhood we all wore really warm jumpers & big coats because it was cold & wet.  But looking out of my window today I see t-shirts!!!!!  But I have gone for the warm snuggly approach and made a little suede jacket to go on top of my dress this month.  The snippet of really soft leather was snaffled from a cousin who is an upholsterer...its surprising what you find on the floor at these places hahahaha!  The pretty paper is by Prima.

Some of you are showing your wardrobes today...not me as I am puting all mine onto a canvas for my sewing room.  Will show you that the next time...I promise :-D  Its never too late to join in this fun.  Do pop over to MARGARET'S to see what its all about!!!  Hugs XXXXX

Lovely, lovely dress. Looks warm and snuggly, too. And of course, the fact you recycled that lovely leather makes it even more beautiful. Even the fiber around the waist is gorgeous. Fall is really here in your part of the world. I wish I had decided to add mine to my craft room. I like that idea as much (or more) than the cabinet I bought.

Karen,
Your dress is just beautiful. I really like the collar and shoulders. It reminds me of a 1940s suit..maybe worn by Katherine Hepburn?? Very cool.

Wonderful dress! This dress is a little ray of sunshine with the sweet little flowers. November is our historically most overcast month. Cold, windy and damp.

Beautiful winter warmer this month! Love the little suede jacket over the wonderful skirt! Just perfect for the change of season! Mx

This looks like something I would totally wear to work by just adding some boots! Makes me think of fall leaves, pumpkins, turkeys and fall weather! Thanks for sharing!
