The black and white altered dress form.
This version of the altered dress form may look complicated but it is way easier than you think
Once again I used a basic dress form and some easy to find materials to create the dress.
Other materials I used are :
Tiny scrap of black netting (tulle)
A black pipe cleaner
Some black beads.
To create a bodice for the dress, cover the dress form with the printed paper using Mod Podge. It is easiest to use strips of paper for this will help to prevent creases. Cover with a coat of Mod Podge to make is as nice and smooth as you can. Leave to dry.
For the skirt you will need two strips of tissue paper. The width will depend on how long you want the skirt. The strips will be used folded in half. Make sure they are long enough to go round the hips of the dress form easily and with a bit to spare.
The second strip is folded in half and then again in half. This one is draped and glued over the top of the first one to create the top of the skirt. There will be a bit left over that you can use to make a loop and a strip for the bow at the back.
Neck and arm holes get finished with little circles made out of black pipe cleaner.
You can decorate the skirt with black beads if you like.
