I Need a Seamstress!!

Check out these cute dresses!!! I want one of each that I can wear. Is there a seamstress out there that can make me these dresses?!?!

Michelle Lyon shared a darling dress card with one of my stamp groups and I just had to CASE it!! Here are my three versions using our Springtime Vintage fabric in the Occasions Mini catalog. The bottom of the dresses were cut using the Square Scallop Die and the Big Shot and the tops of the dresses were made using 3 different Circle Punches, the NEW 2 1/2", the 1 3/4" and the 3/4". Now if I could find someone to make me life size copies I'd be in heaven!!
EDIT TO ADD:
Directions are below!!

I hope you like these cute dresses and are inspired to create something using our new Springtime Vintage fabric. I just love this fabric and hope it makes it into the next big catalog!!

Thank you for visiting me today.
Now I'm off to finish getting ready for Stamp Camp tomorrow.
Have a wonderful weekend!!

Directions to create these adorable dresses!!
The top part of the dress is cardstock. Punch a circle out using the Stampin' Up! 2 1/2" Circle Punch. Then on each side use the 1 3/4" Circle Punch to create the shape for the waist. I punched one side then used the piece punched out and laid it on the other side of the circle and traced it with pencil. Then punch that side out following your traced line. Use the 3/4" Circle Punch for the neck. I then ran all three tops through the Big Shot using different Embossing Folders. I used the Elegant Lines, Elegant Bouquet and Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folders. Then embellish the way you want.

For the bottom part of the dress I used the Big Shot die cutting machine and the Square Scallop Die. Just cut one fabric scallop square using the die. Fold the fabric back according to the shape of the "skirt" you want, glue to the back of the Top of the dress and cut off the excess.

That's it. I really hope my directions are easy for you to follow. If you have any questions, please let me know. I'm happy to help. Also, if you need any of the supplies to make these cards you can order them directly from my Stampin' Up! Website and you will receive preferred pricing, a little discount.
