Paper Doll Dresses
By Larissa Fyodorovna
For this month I have created a fun project for you that could take many of you back to your childhood.
When I was a kid, I had cardboard dolls like this and paper dresses. I really liked playing with them. And this time, the Couture Deluxe collector’s edition has given me the inspiration to try my hand as a fashion designer.
Maybe you would like to try it out too. It’s definitely a lot of fun!
You can see the process in the video.
I hope you like it.
Paper Doll Dress Tutorial – Couture – by Larissa Fyodorovna
I recommend that before you cut the clothes out of the design paper, you first make a prototype out of sketch paper. This way you can try it on the doll and correct it.
The design papers in this collection, but also from many other Graphic 45 collections, are already so gorgeous. Some creations may already look finished before embellishment.
To add an individual touch, you can try embellishments – bows, flowers, sequins, lace, glitter, rhinestones, embossing, and much more.
For more dimension, more natural and vibrant, you can shade the cut edges in the appropriate shade a few shades darker.” ~Larissa
