Dress Up 2010

I started these challenges from Margaret's blog only last month so am a little bit behind with them.

Here is the one I made for February. Inspired by the fact that Valentine's Day was not so long ago I thought a Wedding dress would be appropriate. I used the template by Gini again. The skirt is 2 layers of wide lace, the top of the bodice is edged with tiny silver seed beads stitched in place. My favourite part is the super OTT bouquet, made with a couple of ribbon flowers, flocked greenery and a decoration of pale pink seed beads.
The back has been covered in pearlescent card to hide the ends of the lace and has a net train held in place with a decoration of silver tubular beads and the same pale pink seed beads as the bouquet.
Karen, who introduced me to this challenge has used the theme of love for her dress also but as you can see from her blog taken a totally differnt angle on it.

Like Karen I love the way you've completed the backs as well, mine have fallen onto the 'to do' list which means it could be a while!! Margaret
