Artful Times challenge Tag two

This tag was covered in pattern tissue ( Wish I hadn't thrown all my old patterns away, it's very sobering to know that the things you used as a young woman are now vintage  !!!),The dress form was given a lace top. I added lace at the bottom, and ric rac braid down the sides with two old buttons, to anchor it down. Various sewing charms were then stuck on.

I love this Wendy, and all the little embellishments are perfect. You might already know this but you can often find old dress patterns in charity shops. I know what you mean about 'vintage' items - we have seen things in museums dated from the time of our wedding!

PS It's so sad to know that we are now vintage rather than young and in! Good job we can laugh about it!

Another great tag Wendy - love that you have been using old dress patterns (why did I throw them all away?) and again love how you used the lace on that dress form.
Super!
Thanks for joining us twice at the Artful Times - Hugs, Neet xx
