DECEMBER 2010 WE SAID GOOD-BYE FOR
THE LAST TIME TO ALICE CAMILLA FOR
HOSTING THE DRESS UP CHALLENGE.
DRESS UP 2011 WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN IF IT WERE
AT SEW LOQUACIOUS.
Angela added a new flavor to this year's challenge.
There will still be a new theme each month, but this
year the THEME WILL BE ART INSPIRED.
This month it is IMPRESSIONIST ART...or design your
DRESS based on movement.
I chose this beautiful example that ANGELA
listed as an example on her blog.
TWO DANCERS ENTERING THE STAGE
BY~ EDGAR DEGAS
I chose his work both for Grace, Beauty, and the
I looked at those stunning costumes and ask myself,
"Debbie...have you lost your mind? You have only been
doing ATC's for 6 months!"......Well I say TRY and TRY big.
I tried over and over again to have Walker, my official
studio assistant be the second ballerina but he was
too occupied with butterflies that were fluttering
all around him and my dress...................
A little Angel sent many butterflies to carry the dress off
the heap of redoes and tell me,
"THIS DRESS WILL DO!"
This is the sweet neckline and the waist.
My dress is made from a light grainy grey paper glued to
card stock. It is then covered with white vintage lace and the neck
is a scalloped decorative lace.
The waist line has paper magnolias with a red simulated ruby
in each center.
It doesn't show clearly in the picture but there are lots of
ruffled tulle with tiny silver stars.
It looked so enchanting and had movement.
