Form Fluttering

Form Fluttering, so silly. I’m back again to share a fun project that would be great for anyone who loves fashion and sewing.  Did I mention I’m sharing this on the SVG Attic Blog, too? I highly recommend you checking it out. The Inspiration Team has some of the most amazingly talented ladies. The JGW Dress Form is from the JGW Just Sew Collection and can be found over on the Snapdragon Snippets Site or in the Silhouette Design Store. I’ve been wanting to create this dress form and in true Lisa fashion it had to be bright and happy. Photo Play’s Rhapsody was clearanced at one of the big box stores for $2.50 per kit, $2.50. Back the truck up, we have a steal! If you’ve followed me for anytime you know my love for these kits. Sometimes when I’ve exhausted all the crafty mojo I can pull a kit and the ideas just flow, sometimes. The papers are covered in beautiful, bold colors, just what I was looking for. 

There’s a wonderful step-by-step tutorial, here by the creator of the file. Please be sure to check it out when you start your project. The first thing I did was cut all the pieces I needed ahead of time. Yes, the pieces have been sitting in a box for two weeks waiting for me. Hey, it works. 

When I started assembling the dress form, I gathered all of MY necessary supplies and then went to it. I jumped around a bit because several pieces have multiple layers and I wanted to give them time to dry while I worked on other pieces. 

I’ll never stop talking about these clips and how much time they save me. 

I decided to add a little texture to these accent pieces by running them through an embossing folder and BigKick. 

I added ink to bring out the woodgrain from embossing. 

After assembling the form I started adding a few embellishments.

The butterflies are cut using Simon Says Stamp Flickering Butterflies Die and Beautiful Day Dies

Here’s the finished product. 

The wheels were turning while I was assembling the dress form. So keep checking back for things to come. 

As always, thanks for joining me and have a great weekend.

I did receive the JGW Dress Form for free but all other supplies used were purchased by me personally. Some of the links provided are affiliate links.
