territory again, You know me, always
trying new things. This dress was for
a group swap. But as usual I always want
to know how somehting is to be used or
displayed. So as usual Ihad to come up with
something that my partner could do with it.
I created a cardboard template and added a n
easel so the dress could be sat on a shelf and be
free standing. Then I created the dress.
I am not one for dainty objects, I am kind of
all thumbs and no patience with frill and fou fou.
I took an old Barbie dress for the base dress and
cut off the bodice...never again....and then
decorated with trim and feathers and vintage pearls.
I took a piece of lace crinolin form a large old doll for
underneath dress and give the dress fullness. The
swap was actually called Marie Antoinette Ball Gown.
The most fun was creating the template,
made two to adhere together and covered with
scrapbook paper and edged it with gold trim.
I had more fun doing that than the dress!! lol
Hope you like it and my partner too.
