All dressed up

I was sent a little tip to check out Amy's birthday issue of inspired ideas which is a rather fab Online mag packed full of arty projects! of course the one that immediately caught my eye was a dress assemblage by MessieJessie I drifted slightly(!) off track fiddling around with the dress and then decided I needed a wire gal to show off my designs!
if a gal's going to wear a floaty dress with flowers in her hair then where would she most like to be?? in the garden on a swing, of course!!
la la la...
oh watch out, here comes the competition
give a gal a bit of Cath Kidston and Grandma's old lace and she thinks she's Queen for a day! more , I need to make more of these...
BTW Oma loved the invites, not at all what she'd imagined!! that's good right??!! and yes Linda and Kate before you start nagging I will open my ETSY shop soon...

Very inspirational and the perfect addition to a summer "outing." They really ARE Queens for a day (or longer). And so glad to read your Oma liked the invitations. And surprises are always good, especially when they are from a lovingly made invitation.

Well worth the wait! LOVE the dresses and your swingin' wirey models. If only it were that easy to create an ensemble for oneself--out of book pages, muslin and tattered Cath Kidston!
