Artygirlz - Fabrics



Well, poor Mae is probably turning over in her grave. Never has she been so badly dressed or so flat chested. I ziggzagged a piece of black polar fleece onto card. As you can see it went a bit askew. I then added the polka dotted dress also in polar fleece and to my delight found some blingy fabric left over from a granddaughter's fancy dress costume. A silk rose set off the outfit. Tacky I know but, hey, I am no dressmaker!!

  5. Oh Lord, we have unleashed a monster!! The "digital wardrobe lady" has turned to her sewing cupboard, and there'll be no stopping her now. This is quirkily wonderful, Marie. Your puckish sense of humor is such a joy!
