October Dress


So here I am...a week past the October deadline for the Dress-up Project...  But on the bright side...it IS still October!!

Since I seem to be doing nothing but raking leaves lately, this seemed like the natural choice for October.  The bodice of the dress if cut from suede scraps. The skirt is made from a pack of silk leaves. Hot glue holds the whole works together.  Feels very woodland nymph-ish to me.  I even had to give a light spray of spray adhesive with a sprinkle of glitter for this one.

Hop on over to Margaret's Alice and Camilla Blog to check out the other wonderful October Dresses!!  You won't be sorry that you did!

oooo I really love this dress Halle! The suede & the leaves are perfect & yes...I would love to dance around the woods in that! XXX

Our leaves are still green, still on the trees, and still wishing for cooler weather. But your lovely dress reminds me that autumn will soon be here and I too will be raking more than a few of these. This is one great tribute to autumn and the leaves that are turning and falling in other parts of the country today.
