:new: Less than ten days left, get cracking!!

:bulletpink: The poll revealed to me that the lot of you are in favor of features, but another half of you are interested in challenges! Because I'm not a direct contest person (just ask my favorite ladies at stitchingpirates, I hired them to do the contests for me!) I figure I can mold it into one event for you guys, and we'll see how it goes. :D

:bulletpink: Here's what we're doing! I'm featuring a bunch of artisan craft dresses today. :love: You probably predicted this. :lmao: But whatchu gunna do?! I love dresses!! I'd also like to point out while we're on the topic, many of my favorite Ball Jointed Doll dresses are in "Photography" instead of "Artisan Crafts"... which means I can't feature them for a DD! Please keep this in mind!

Your challenge is:
  • Take your own craft and make a dress! :la: It must be submitted to dA after this journal to count!
  • Link back to this journal in your description.
  • Comment here with a thumb/link so that I don't miss it.
  • There is no need to sew anything! Even if you aren't an artisan feel free to participate!
    • Yes!! Bring me drawings of dresses!!

Extra Ideas:

  • Make a dress out of flowers! Make a dress out of cake!
  • MAKE A FLOWER SHAPED DRESS OUT OF CAKE! MAKE A CAKE SHAPED DRESS OUT OF FLOWERS!
  • Need even more inspiration? I'm particularly fond of [this fashion blog].
  • Take a moment to see the lovely group of BeautifulDresses!

At the end of the month I'll feature all your new dresses in a new journal. :squee: If this goes well I'll start a new feature challenge next month!

Barely squeaked in here! I'm just going to submit my rough sketch because I couldn't get my painting done in time (were all sick).
