February Dress




I have finished my February dress at last! Yes, it's a bit cliche - but I like Valentine's Day! If you haven't read my previous dress post, I am participating in the Alice and Camilla Dress-Up Challenge. Hopefully I will finish my March dress this weekend so I can post it at the beginning of the month! I'm also showing a photo of some vintage hand-painted ribbon I was going to use on the dress, but I chickened out.... it's just too pretty to cut. Any ideas on how I can display this?

Your dress is stunningly gorgeous. The accents you used were the perfect valentine touch. I love the corset type bodice, too.

Oh my goodness, these dresses just get better and better. I just love this dress all of it! Fabulous!
I'm just a beginner but what about using the ribbon as the dangly bottom part of a paper doll or dress?
You know the ones where the head and bodice is made but the lower part is just dangling ribbons? You wouldn't have to cut it this way.
