I really had a ton of fun with this one, and I hope you will be inspired to make one, or two, or three of these fun dresses. I think they would be perfect for little girls and big girls, alike! This would make such a beautiful statement, also, on a scrapbook page layout, or how about the front of a mini album or altered book! Or just make a bunch of them and hang them up! Stay tuned because next week, I have another surprise for you with another style that I think you are going to like.
In the meantime, thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful, creative weekend!
