I was thrilled to see this set in Claire's last Waltzingmouse stamp release, as it took me back to grade school days when I used to play with my best friend playing paper dolls! We would design all kinds of outfits and entertain ourselves for hours! The photo may not show up too well, but I used a piece of tulle and gathered it slightly over the skirt portion. I adhered it with score tape under the bodice and also made a couple of lines of 2-way glue down the skirt area to hold the folds. The bodice was paper pieced. I flipped the sketch to accommodate this image and moved the placement of the sentiment. Hop on over to see what the talented WM design team cooked up for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! I look forward to using this set for more "girly" creations! :-)
