Please Join My New Challenge--Sunday, August 8th
My piece for "Lost Loves" and Dress Up 2010
When I was young, the first thing my mom did when we got back from shopping at a department store was tell me to go upstairs to my room and make sure to remove the pinned-on flowers from the dresses that she bought for me...She thought that they looked tacky, and maybe they did, but I’m not sure. Today at 85, my mom is still a true “fashion queen,” so I think maybe she was right. (If anyone needs fashion advice, they always call my mom.)
But, in honor of the omission of the embellishments in the past, I decided to make a dress that is full of them--flowers and all! (Pretty brave I thought considering this is polka dot!) Also, it is in honor of those “lost loves”--all the roses pinned to my dresses that were taken off in an effort to look stylish.
It was made with commercial papers and pink tulle fabric.
Dresses for January through July are posted on my sidebar....the yellow one isn't that yellow--it just photographed that way! lol
