Clarice is so excited! this is her first time to attend the Polka Dot Annual Dress form Ball, like Cinderella , she had nothing got wear but wanted to go so bad, what was  a girl to do! a lace curtain, a lace table cloth, a lamp shade,  some tulle, could she pull it off?


I lent her my necklace, she was so happy! I took a lace panel, yes it really is a curtain lol! and pulled  it up around her neck tying it with a pink tulle sash


you can see from the side view that her shawl is indeed a table cloth, the very one from my wedding over 30 years ago


there’s still time for you to go, just head over to & see who all’s going to the Ball!

so over all  Clarice is ready to go to the Annual Dress form Ball,her dress is merely a lace panel wrapped around her neck & held in place with pink tulle creating a sash,her shawl is a lace table cloth from our wedding so long ago, she is borrowing my necklace, a lampshade or a hat adorned with pink tulle tied into a bow, she is so excited she got invited to the Ball, she could not be more happier than if she were Cinderella!

She looks so pretty with all her lace. And I think lamp shade hats must be "in" this year, my Millie and a few others are wearing them! Nice to meet you. Diane

Clarice is just as pretty as that lace. My Lucy is draped in all kinds of lace too. I love the color and the necklace. Di@Cottage-wishes

Love the outfit! The pink touches make for a nice pop of color. It is one of my favorite colors to wear, too.

I just wanted you to know Clarice arrived safe and sound, she looked so cute when she got out of the carriage in her bright pink scarf! She was immediately pulled to the dance floor by a very handsome gentleman! I promise to return her safe and sound when the ball is over. Thank you so much for attending!

I think Clarice is stunning and so smart for using what she had on hand. Her lace is so pretty!! Looks like she's been spending too much time at the punch bowl along with one of my ladies:-)

You sure know how to improvise. I'm impressed that Clarise was pulled together so nicely. I'm sure she's having a blast at the ball.
