Dress Up 2010 is the idea of Margaret who decided to make a dress a month for the whole of the year. Anyone taking part needs to leave a link to her blog so that everyone can see the creations.
Karen also found a super template for dresses on Gini's blog which I have used for this first one. Gini is also taking part and has a super woollen dress on her blog. As this is for January I was inspired by the card I made for my niece's 21st birthday which I made for that month.
The bodice is champagne coloured pearlescent card with a snowflake punched out and backed with pale blue pearlescent card - this 2nd layer hides all the ends of the ribbon quite neatly and securely.
Tiny star shaped self adhesive gems were added to the bottom of the bodice for a bit of bling. January is still the 'party season' after all.
Stitch insisted on modelling it but really it doesn't quite fit very well!
This dress fits in with the challenge on Bubbly Scrumptious Whispers of Colour #1 which asks for the colours lilac, blue and a splash of deep pink and cream.
