{Little White Dress}

As seen in the Spring 2012 Somerset Memories Magazine – page 81.

A few months ago…sweet Heidi from sugahbeez.blogspot.com sent me a lovely surprise in the mail. She had spotted this sweet dress on one of her flea market outings and thought it might like to be altered. I swooned at the Swiss pin dot and gorgeous lace…little stains from love and wear…it showed age…and I didn’t care…

I no longer have a daughter that is wee to wear it…(boo hoo!)


My daughter Allison (aka Alli) age 22

so to the studio it went…sometimes they have to speak to me…and this past Sunday the dress did. I added old vintage appliques to the beautiful collar – with oodles of seed beads…
and old vintage hankies with beautiful embroidery and lace…
a sweet Paper Whimsy image had to take center stage…
and a primitive wire hanger…to hang up and stage!

I adore sweet old dresses…and this gave me the perfect excuse to create some art! :)
