This is my first skinny. I was so pleased to find your challenge blog and will ask some of my friends to check it out and join in.

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!!
Photo of Mae Googled. Everything else down to me, my sewing cupboard and some untidy stitching. (Now all I have to do is clean up the gold thread that sheds all over the place.
I hope I will be forgiven for this lighthearted take on the much maligned and tragic Queen Marie Antoinette.
Found images Marie Antoinette and cake, candles my own "artwork", background and gold edging Lauren Bavin and gold lettering by Flergs.

Mark Twain said "Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society."
The photo is from one of my family albums - extracted, colorised a bit and costumed rather gaily.
