Posy Patch Dress

Hello all of you fabulous crafters in blogland!
I have wanted to make a dress out of paper for sometime now. I was on Pinterest and saw several different ones on there and thought I could do this, so I give it a try and this is what I came up with. Not to bad for my first outfit made of paper. This Posy Patch Dress was created for Heartfelt Creations using their beautiful paper, stamps and dies. 
Heartfelt Creations Products and Products Sold By HC:
HCPC 3303 Posy Patch Flowers PreCut Set
HCD 701 Posy Patch Die
Raindrops on Roses Paper Collection
 Other Products Used for projects other than Heartfelt Creations:
Paper: Black
Ink: White Sharpie Marker, Y18 Copic Marker,  Stampin Up - Lovely Lilac
Accessories: Small Belt Buckle, Glitter Ribbon, Rhinestone, Black Crepe Streamer Paper, Black Netting, Hanger
Instructions: Cut out 2 forms, that you will find here and create the faux stitching on it. Adhere only the outer edges together. After the adhesive has dried add a little stuffing inside form for some fullness. Choose a ribbon to create belt, add the buckle and adhere to form. Now cut netting 16" x 2 1/2" and machine stitch some pleats and glue to form. Next, cut a 12" x 2 1/4" piece of pattern paper and pleat using score board every 1/8" and glue it right above the netting. I then took 4 layers of black crepe paper and machine stitched some pleats. Do this twice and glued both to form. Added a flower using the smallest Posy Patch stamp (stamped 2) and die cut them out. Distressed a small amount of ink to flower, placed on dress and glued a small rhinestone in center.
