 The Polka Dot Closet
 graciously invited
 to the
 Dress Form Ball

 I've been helping Hedy put together her outfit...first this, then that...finally, she decided.

Here is what she/we came up with.

Her linen top is a vintage hand towel with bits of lace enhancing the bodice. 
 The skirt, made from packing paper...how cool is that? 
 It will even stretch as the evening goes by and she needs a little room to breathe.

  Isn't her vintage sequin belt just the perfect touch?

 What about her vintage rhinestone sweater...now, that was a fantastic  find at the Good Will.... let's all swoon over it. 

I'd say, *Hedy pulled it all together!*

She's so excited! 

All her "bling"... can you ever have too much?
She wore her heart to let them know her heart is open for love....

The key will unlock her heart.... if he's the right one.

A girl can never smell too pretty....well, Hedy couldn't decide which flavor...so she brought them all.  

We went round and round about her hat....
Hedy won. 
The bird nest, tassel, shoe (cuz she doesn't have feet and a girl must have wonderful shoes) hat was the winner.   

When the man of her dreams finds her....he'll stop and smell the rose, sweeping her off her feet... (Oh that's right, she has no feet AND...NO head for her hat)!

As she ran out the door, grabbing her little box purse (literally a box with paper and beads), she waved good-bye with a smile on her face (oops..no arms or face either), she climbed into her awaiting coach to whisk her away for the night of her life.  

"Have fun Hedy", I said.. as she disappeared into the distance.

Thanks for inviting us Carol...

    1. Thanks again carol... I had my hubby link for me... I certainly couldn't figure it out...although it didn't look that hard, while watching him. I'm loving this fun time, I think it should be an anual event. I'm sure all the rest of the girls would love to attend another BALL>
