I MADE ANOTHER ONE

This girl is actually hot pink, but is looking more like red. In any case, she is smaller than the first one I made (15 June post, if you didn't see her) and took only 125 yards of tulle. She also took far less time. Partly because I kind of know what I am doing now and partly because I used half as much tulle.
I covered the body with black and white toile and then used silver glitter. I maybe could have used a little less glitter, as you cannot even tell what is underneath it. I wanted to use a black and white paper, but just couldn't find one that was what I wanted. I found a couple of black and cream sheets at Paper Tales, but I really wanted white. The fabric seemed the best solution.
To tie the bodice to the skirt, I used hot pink pearls. You have to see these girls in person. The impact is much greater than in a photograph.

Wouldn't an all white one be pretty?
