Over the weekend I have been busy creating this beautiful dress form in satin and lace.
And although it didn't start out as wedding dress Griff says it would be a lovely gift for a winter Bride
I gave the dress form two coats of flesh colored paint and allowed each coat to dry
Once dry I wrapped the whole dress from in cling film and created a separate bodice for it from paper mache and gauze to stiffen it.
I carefully shaped the top and trimmed the bottom of the bodice to make a lovely shape and then covered it in ribbon and lace .. and trimmed it as needed
It took me all day to add in layers of the tulle, lace and ribbons
I carefully placed tiny gemstones from Want2Scrap along each length of the ribbon and I cut them into fish tails
The tiny white roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts as are the pearl and diamanté gemstones on the bows.
It really is much prettier in real life and the question is ... who do I give it to?
Maybe Isabella my Great Granddaughter would love it. I am going to watch her sing Carols at her nursery school today.
I can imagine the teacher saying "Come on Isabella ... sing" and she will reply "In a minute ..."
Three year olds can be such fun
More tomorrow ...
