Paper dresses

I made this a little while ago and liked how it turned out ... no stamping this time but a pretty 'wedding dress' that i may enter into a swap (there are 11 other dresses to make so we will see) ... but I really liked doing this.

The bodice is card covered with patterned paper and the skirt is 2 layers of crepe paper which I've gathered and glued at the waist with a 'lace' paper over skirt. The inspiration, bodice template and directions are here ... Kellie Reynolds is one very talented lady. I've tried to do a photograph of the bodice in more detail but it's not great ... a bit foreshortened .. the dress measures 9" from shoulder to hem.


  1. It's gorgeous - it looks so real!

  2. This is so pretty - I thought it was a real dress at first glance!
