Dress Up - November

Welcome to Dress Up in November!
A couple of weeks ago I picked up a pile of old paper '45' record sleeves, the colours are just fab and I decided to use one of them as the backing for my November dress.
I punched out some paper circles and made tiny button centers

I added a touch of black tule and glitter

poor Mozart seems to be suffering from the lesser known 'glitter' skin condition

As you can see in the background, I managed to make some progress with my cupboard and I'll post about it later in the week. Now I just need to find myself a little door handle and some kind of nameplate! Thank you all for your lovely comments last month, I'm so pleased Dress Up has brought a little bit of colour and inspiration to you, whether you've been reading or playing along with the project.

This is gorgeous. I would never have considered using a record sleeve. And I'm actually OLD ENOUGH to remember records and 45's even! The "flowers" are the perfect addition to the dress.

I can see you've made some headway with your cabinet. I look forward to seeing the finished project. And thanks again for hosting. This has been awesome.

Another truly gorgeous and original dress Margaret, I love your ideas!

I've just added my link - I'm still enjoying making these dresses - just one more to go now!

Thank you again for this wonderful project x

Love this! I really like the combination black tulle and glitter on top of the record sleeve. To me it has an early Madonna feel to it... when she first became a hit wearing tulle and black leather and lots of jewelry.
