I was totally inspired by seeing the original
Degas' The Little Dancer aged Fourteen
to make my dress this month.
I love this sculpture
and am thrilled to have finally seen the original.
I've had such fun making this dress
from scribbling on the back of an envelope
To finding the materials...
I've had the sequins in a tin since I was eighteen !
I cut the bodice from crinkly gold paper
then covered it in ruched tissue from a antique dress pattern.
And made the skirt
from muslin I used in
the Erosion Project
so it looks old & faded
Margaret has hosted this wonderful year
of dress making...
only one more month to go.
