The Countess' Cedar Gown and Top Hat, Part II

Here we are. The bodice is covered with shorter and smaller branches. Still, I had to trim the greenery closer to the body with my garden sheers - cedar is not the most slimming material. A huge red poppy with petals falling randomly was added. Keeping the design simple and bold conveys modernity.

Voila, a different type of Christmas tree.

It would be nice to keep the gown inside, but with three dogs, it's simply not possible.

What?! But I like having my own private indoor  bathroom.

I'm sure the squirrels will hide a few walnuts in there - they always do.

Okay, now for the top hat...
