This is the third dress I made to go on my banner. This is another style my mother often made for me. I love polka dots and just had to use this paper for this dress. I used white for the collar and trim on the sleeves and trimmed it with with red ribbon. The I added white paper strips to mimic ribbon across the bottom of the dress. When I was looking through my stash to find something to decorate the dress, I found this Fashionista tag from 7gypsies and had that "Aha!" moment. I printed out the "celebrate life" to add to the front.
For the back of this dress I chose this paper because it just looked so old fashioned to me. Once again I found a 7gypsies tag to add to it. I think of my girls in dresses similar to this when they were little and always thought they looked like such little princesses. I cut a round card in half and attached it to the top and used it as my signature label. I incorporated the card because cards are another one of my addictions. ")
