I have been in Michaels every week for the last couple of months, teaching SDU (Scrapbook Design & You) and would usually find myself walking through the aisles featuring the wonderful spring decor. I saw the white wire dress form and immediately wanted to take it home. I resisted her for weeks until her lure and 40% off price tag drew me in. I succumbed and bought her and put on the floor in my scrap room. Every time I'd go in there she taunted me, asking me when she would get some attention. I finally decided to summon my inner clothing designer and play Project Runway with paper. I had a blast choosing just the right papers and trims. She is finally at peace and I can enjoy looking at her. Tim Gunn would be proud of me I think and even Heidi would have a hard time auf'ing me. Michael Kors would think she was a doll in her springtime frock, yes, I had lots of fun dressing my little wire dress form. :)
I used Echo Park's polka dot paper from the Springtime line for her skirt, scallop-punched the hem and embellished with punched flowers and ribbons from my scraps. The sweetheart top is Basic Grey Lemonade and the yellow gingham are leftover scalloped circles from name-tags I made last week. I added a tulle bow and some glitter of course.
So, she's all dressed now, for a springtime garden party. All she needs is an invitation...
