Handkerchief Wedding Dress

Is this not the cutest thing you have ever seen!!! I got the idea from The Dove's Nest in Waxahackie, Texas when I was there last weekend! The skirt is made from a handkerchief. I just embossed a piece of paper and then cut a bodice from it. It is folded at the shoulders and then I glued it with my TRUSTY 3-in-1 glue at the side seams. The skirt is then just tucked up inside with nothing holding it in place but the tightness of the bodice. I added tiny pearls at the neckline and it would be nice to add them at the waistline if you have the patience dealing with the TINY pearls! This is just too cute and very easy. I made a little hanger from wire from my beading stash! These would be cute for bridesmaids gifts with the color of their dress as the bodice!
