Spring Fling Week {A Paper Prom Dress}

Hi there! It’s Mona here today with a Spring inspired project to share. While I was out for a little retail therapy, I couldn’t help but notice all the beautiful prom dresses on display. So many different styles to choose from: some long, some short, some simple, some frilly and elegant, etc… When I returned home and was looking at my “naked” dress form, I decided to dress her up with a simple, yet elegant Pink Paislee prom dress made using gorgeous products from the Spring Jubilee collection:

After creating a pattern, I used the pretty patterned paper accordingly: Spring Jubilee ~ Festive for the bodice and smaller skirt pieces, Spring Jubilee ~ Party for the larger skirt pieces:

Spring Jubilee ~ Shindig for the rosettes, Spring Jubilee ~ Festive for the leaves and were cut using die templates from the Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms set:

Once the dress was complete, I adorned it with a few beautiful butterflies from the Spring Jubilee ~ Chipboard Stickers pack:

Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you have enjoyed my Spring themed project today :)

Spring Jubilee Party ~ 00601

Spring Jubilee Shindig ~ 00605

Spring Jubilee Festival ~ 00606

    I’m amazed at the perfect lines that went into this dress. It’s absolutely perfect, and you’d have to have such care to stitch it without creasing it, too. Fantastic job!
