It's the penultimate month of the 'Dress Up' project hosted by Margaret over on her blog Alice and Camilla. Every month since the beginning of this year we have been creating a dress and also a wardrobe for them all to live in.
This month I've made a party dress (come on Barbie, let's go party...)
for a fireworks ball. Remember, remember the 5th of November!
The back of the dress is deep pink silk (as are the straps and sash belt).
Then a layer of lighter pink lining fabric
Finally, part of a pink bath scrunchie (unused I might add - lol)
All the fabrics are machine stitched together and the bath scrunchie folds were held in place with some sequins here and there.
Here's the dress in the wardrobe
The other ten dresses are currently being dry cleaned ready for the big finale next month.
As December will be the last month of this fantastic project, I think the final dress will have to be something rather special - I'd better start thinking now!
