How to: make a fancy dress

My printer is still out of order, and I think it's time to buy a new one... Anyway I am still unable to print anything and it makes me sad... and angry... and... more creative, to be honest.
For this challenge at
which is
we would like to see a fashion-related cards: dresses, shoes, hats, fancy outfits and glamour looks.
How easy for a real woman!

For my DT card I had to think. What can I do without printer? And here it is:
A hand-sewn dress! Yes! And some hand-sewn flowers. The skirt is made from circles sewn one by one into the paper. I cut a piece of fabric I found in second-hand store. I also added a ribbon and some gems.
The 'legs' are being doodled with marker.
The shoes and a bag are puffed stickers I bought ages ago at Tesco. And their day has come LOL
For making this card I also used a border punch, an embossing folder borrowed from a friend and a lace from my stash. There is no sentiment here, so you can use this card for many occasions.
Thank you for visiting my blog!

Very creative, but sadly does not comply to our challenge rules. At NMWC we require the main image to be stamped, sorry. Suzanne (Owner NMWC)
