freezer paper or tracing paper
fabric to use for bodice
foam core board
standard plastic hanger
ribbon and ribbon flowers for decoration
These directions do not include exact
measurements, as much as they utilize estimates of what you will need to
complete this project.
Use the larger piece of fabric and hot glue the edges to the foam core. I cut little slits as I went around the curves to make it fit the contours of the bodice. When I did the opposite side, I made sure I pulled it taut as I was gluing so I would have a nice flat piece with no wrinkles. Continue gluing all the way around and trim any excess fabric that is not glued down.
Next, use the piece that was cut to exact size
and hot glue it to the back side of the foam core. The fabric I used
was a synthetic that didn't fray, but if you had a fabric that frayed,
you could use a trim around the edges to hide the edges.
Cut lengths of ribbon (5 of them) for the streamers to hold bows and glue them at equal distance across the front of the dress. Use a piece of ribbon and glued it across the BACK of the bottom of the bodice, then cut a piece for the front of the bodice and leave it about 1/2 " longer on each side, gluing that in place. Take the extra length on each side around back and work with it, turning the edge under and gluing it in place for a more finished look.
Lastly, place a bow at the neck of the hanger
and affix ribbon roses at the center of each bow, as well as the neck of the hanger.
