Prima Bella Rouge dress

I have been following the CHA shows for a few years, through photos online and from photos taken by some of my friends. It is always exiting to see new trend within the art and crafts. Prima showed Bella Rouge collection during the CHA - Winter 2015. The Bella Rouge collection, gave me the inspiration to create a "Flaminco" dress with lots of ruffles. 

I wanted to create the dress form, the dress and the flowers on the dress from scratch. I created a video tutorial for the dress form and a photo tutorial for the flowers. I also wanted to create the dress, using papers only from The Bella Rouge collection. I have only used some sheets of paper of Prima's - The Archivist-Le Collectionneur - to create the dress form and some swirls and leaves for the dress.

Creating the dress form:

The process of creating the dress

The dress has taken me about a month to do, in between other crafts, work and classes.

I started creating the under skirt out of normal copy paper. I also added the folded skirt over the top. Then I added a crinoline.

Then I created the ruffles. The ruffles are added onto the crinoline skirt. All the ruffles has to be worked with to make sure they fold the right way. I did this by adding a rectangle or taking away a rectangle in ruffles when needed. The ruffles were taped back together. 

When the ruffles were full of tape, I started over - creating a new ruffle by using the other one as a template. I did this about 5 times with all the 5 ruffles before I was satisfied.

Then, I took of all the skirts and ruffles and used them as templates to create the underskirt....

.....the skirt....

.... and the ruffles. 

I also made a top for the dress. The shawl is created from paper, using two cutting template from Birds cards as a base.

Creating the flowers

All the flowers for this dress are handmade.
