Show your accessories from the Piperlime accessory wall.
Time: You have 14 hours to complete this challenge.
Chloé is ready to hit the red carpet or the hottest party in town in this shimmering dress made with ribbons from the party store. The ribbons were turned into 1/4-inch circles using a hole-punch & then layered on a muslin base. It is accessorized with a chunky silver latex bracelet made from a balloon & some strappy silver heels from Piperlime.
Let me just tell you about gluing all those little circles of ribbon on…
It took up most of my time but in the end I think the effect was worth it. I love the way it catches the light & how the silver ribbon almost looks like mother of pearl.
Don’t forget to check out Susi’s entry, I understand there is a top hat involved!
