French Dressing

When I visited the NEC back in March for the Hobbycraft and Stich and Sew exhibition, I found a french designer in a room along with a series of dresses inspired by clothes of the 17th and 18th centuries.   The designer (Olliver Henry) works from Paris and has made costumes for opera houses across Europe.

 He embroiders and adds beads and ribbons to the garments by hand, close up they were totally incredible...fully deserving of their scrapbook layout.

I added peacock feathers for added glamour, Sizzix die cuts and paper pieced from the papers.

I used Graphic 45 papers to make the layout, the title uses stickers from the paper pack onto a Basics banner by Do Crafts. The rest of the title was die cut using an Xcut script alphabet.
