Pixie Dress


This pixie dress is my answer to Cloth Paper Scissors
Stencil Garden Reader Challenge.
I sent the photos off this morning. They will let me know if they want to publish it in a few weeks.


The bodice is pfd fabric that I dyed and I used a green metallic marker when I traced around their flower stencil. The skirt is a dyed brown paper bag. There is a mix of tole, tissue paper and twigs between the paper bag panels. The flowers on the skirt are made out of index cards. I cut the flowers out, painted them, then Collage Pauged them to the skirt.

The trim on the neck line was made with yarn, Christmas cards, a facial tissue box and tissue paper.



You will be seeing Pixie dresses in my Etsy store soon.
Wish me luck!
Jill
