Oh this was fun! It is to challenge you to make a "new dress" each month. No of course not a REAL dress, but a little fabric, paper, or otherwise creative artsy kinda dress. This was the first one I attempted but some of the other gals have been making them from the beginning and they are quite stunning. I had so much fun I was actually thinking of trying to play catch-up with everyone ahead of me!!
click here at Alice and Camilla's blog to get the links for all the participants.

My little frock is made from sewing front and back wallpaper sample paper and stitching some pretty green netting to the skirt with a ribbon belt. And of course when I finished it, I had nowhere to put such a tiny dress, so you guessed it. I had to make a "closet". I chose a cigar box and added some tiny elements as drawers, boxes and then the sheets, bedding and purses on top!

C'mon you know you want to make one too!


  1. Cute idea to get those creative juices flowing!
