I saw a card (on a blog or somewhere that I can't remember) where they took a scalloped circle and folded it to make the bottom of the dress, then used a heart punch with the sides cut off to make the top.
I decided to try it with a doily! It took a few tries to get the folds right, but it worked! For the top of the dress I had to cut out another doily and adhered it to white - rather than it being a lace top - which just wouldn't be right.
Once that was done, I added the ribbon sash and adhered it with a brad.
But then...I couldn't figure out what kind of card to make with it. I decided it would be a short wedding dress. The inside of the card says: "...And they lived happily ever after. The End"
I'd like to hear what else you might suggest I do with it, because I want to make some more, but would prefer to not make all wedding cards!

OK...y'all asked and here it is: The tutorial on how to do the doily folds to make the dress.
