It's so cute!  How did you make it?

thanks , I just made a basic circle skirt for the base  then zig zagged row after row of artificial leaves until the entire skirt was covered . Then I made a light sheer underskirt and attached that added a waist band and last I put in the zipper . It didnt take long at all

i wanna know more, like...did you make the bigger leaves yourself? how did you attach all the smaller ones together? is it all once piece?
fantastic work and beautiful pic!

Thank you . The smaller leaves are all stitched on in rows with a zigzag stitch , and the larger leaves are actually from a harvest theme place mat I repurposed Wink its fully lined with a diagonal zipper and burlap crows - heres the back

actually they were in a faux flower arrangement , they are made from the same material as " silk " flowers ( Nylon or acetate maybe .. Im not sure their exact makeup ) I thought they looked alot like feathers and I considered adding  real feathers in the mix ... but Im not sure if the recipient is ok with animal sourced materials . This way I got the look without any use of animal products Smiley

Thank you so much , and yes thats how I do it . I start By making a basic bodice ( with or without skirt attached ) ( or you could upcycle a thrifted dress) and then just start layering on the scraps in any haphazard way that appeals to you , the more you bunch and twist the fabric the more awesome the " quilted " texture becomes . its really almost like meditating when you get in the creative zone and just start wildly stitching Smiley

Thanks for looking and comments welcome !
Have a great day
