Making this card for my daughter to take to her friend's wedding was really a fun simple project with great results. It was a little bit scrap booking and a little sewing combined.
I used this pattern from the Islander line of patterns. The directions and pictures were clear and easy to follow. The stamped dress form on card stock is included.
Of course I changed a few things. I made the skirt a little longer and I did not put on a fabric overskirt.
The bodice is made from a scrap of white peau de soie. The pattern includes a cutting pattern piece and a pressing pattern piece so pressing this tiny seam allowances is easy. One problem I had pressing was that my little tiny iron does not have a thermostat so it continued to heat. I melted the fabric to the iron. So I cut another and unpluged the iron. Everything went well after that. The bodice is stitched to the card first then the skirt. I made the skirt from two circles of tulle and two circles of net. The raw edges are covered with a ribbon.
My daughter chose the background paper and I punched the corners off .
