A New Picnic Dress

. . . And the reason for making that giant striped skirt for the most recent HSF challenge.

Actually the dress came about as a means to meet the requirements of the challenge and then I found out about an Impressionist Era picnic planned for the end of April. 

I am copying this fashion plate: 

Hideous isn't it?! I just love it :D outrageous wide pink and white stripes, huge bustle and frilly large pink bows! It's going to be ridiculous, girlie, and so much fun :)


  1. That is awesome! The striped fabric is perfect. Where did you find it? Don't forget the tassels!

    1. Thanks :) I'm having so much fun with it!
      The fabric came from www., but like 3 years ago as it wa for another project originally.
      And I have a good length of drapery tassels I think I'll use, the dress sure has a little bit of it all for embellishment huh :)
