Dress #321 Emerald

A holiday dress for when you don't want to be too over-the-top, perhaps??  The color people have decided emerald is the color of the year for 2013. I like it. Of course, I'd be hard pressed to say there's a color I don't like at all. These are fabrics with emerald that I had on hand: silk dupioni, cotton, and some ribbon and beads.


  1. I love it when you accessorize. I wonder where you find such tiny items. But maybe the dresses are larger than I think they are.

    1. There is a store near me that sells beads and other jewelry making supplies. They'll let me buy one of anything, so I buy everything that is the right scale. Sometimes, I do cut pieces off larger ones to use. This one is unaltered. The red rose is about 3/8" or 1.1 cm, and the dress, from shoulder to hem, measures 6" or 15 cm. Most of the dresses are this size or proportionally longer for the floor length gowns.
