Let's Get Shabby Challenge #42.....

Over at
 Let's get Shabby
for Challenge #42
We want you to be inspired by this fab sketch...
Oh...I do love a doily!! had lots of fun with my DT piece for this challenge.
I haven't altered a baby dress in a while....
So I rummaged through my supplies and came up with these....
So here is my take on this challenge...
and here is the full altered dress...
I picked out the doily and butterflies details in the sketch, and added a vintage photo that has been printed onto fabric...
along with lots of vintage buttons, lace and ribbon.

Now hop over to
Let's Get Shabby
