Wohoooo - I made it to the top 5!!! Help me get on Project Run&Play by voting
(voting closes Sunday)
Here is the knock off comparison:
I knew all along that I wanted some kind of sash and every girl needs something in her hair!
The sash is just this great sparkly black ribbon tied in a big bow - I didn't want it to take anything away from the dress itself. And the Headband is an extra ruffle gathered into a rosette with a button jewel sewn into the center with silver thread. The rosette is sewn onto one of those great elastic headbands you can find in a 6-10 pack at the $1 store. Easy peasy.
I am absolutely in love with the finished look - so thank you Leslie, for asking me to be a Bridesmaid in your wedding 7 years ago, so that this dress could someday come to be!!!
(*Oh yeah, everything is upcycled - except the ribbon sash and elastic band for the hair piece)
I am so excited (read nervous) to be entering this ensemble into the Audition pool for Project Run & Play. If I learned anything by sewing along last season, it is that there is no shortage of talented women in the world sewing for their 'littles'.
And here is baby girl (who I think, just maybe, enjoys all the modeling her mama forces her to do):
what says 'Christmas dress' better than hanging it in a fir tree?
Thanks for stopping by - I hope you like what you see ;o)
