Cute dress for a cute little girl!

In terms of the ribbon fraying, if you cut the threads short, and singe the ends of the ribbon with a match (or some other sort of pire-producing substance), it will stop the fraying from occurring. My dad used to do this with all of my hair ribbons when I was a kid - it was awesome. Hope that helps

I've been meaning to do these for ages, but this morning, I finally got around to actually getting my butt into gear.

All I did was pick some pretty papers which matched my bedroom walls, cut them to size, and whacked them in some frames. Onto the pictures:

Apologies for the glare. Apparently, glass is shiny...

And all together:

And all up on the wall:

I'd love to hear your thoughts!



P.S. Check out the other awesome artwork on my lovely wall. The amazing Japanese Garden is a photo taken by my best friend (complete with leaves he stole from the garden) - he is fantastic. And the beautiful crane was done by my boyfriend - all collaged tiny papers. By no means is my scrapbook papers in frames anywhere near as artistic as either of these, but I think it complements them nicely. I just need to find something to fill in that last gap.

Only a couple of suggestions:
1. make the bodice longer: a longer style can often flow over your hips, giving a slimmer shape
2. possibly make the necline a v-neck: this can also give an outfit a slimmer line
3. choose the patterned fabric on the RIGHT - it's beautfiul!
Hope that was helpful!

Thanks guys!

Yeah, I'm totally in love with the fabric! I almost squealed when I saw it (and I'm not normally a squealing kind of girl)

I live in Sydney, Australia, and one of my absolute favourite stores in the WORLD is Spotlight - which is pretty much any crafter's dream - lots, and lots of everything crafty... Anywho, saw the fabric there for $2 a metre and I was SUPER impressed, and HAD to purchase - yeah!

I gave my pencil case it's first run today in the real world (well, as close to the real world as uni gets), and i totally love it!
