Paper Dresses Template

I have made a template of different styles of dresses to use to join in the Dress Up 2010 Challenge that Margaret is running over at her blog Alice and Camilla. You can find her post giving details of the challenge here.

I have drawn each dress so it will fit onto a 6 inch square piece of designer paper.
Each dress prints at about 5.5 inches high.
If you would like to use the template you are more than welcome.

All you need to do is left click the picture below to make it bigger then right click it, save it to your computer using "save as" and print it out at A4. It will hopefully print the right size, at least it did for me when I tried it.
I suggest you print it onto card, cut the shapes out and use those as templates. Remember to cut to the inside of the black lines so the pieces don't keep getting bigger and bigger.

Happy creating everyone!

Thanks Gini, you are so artistic! If I tried to draw a dress it would end up looking like underwear.

Gini said...

Well you're in exalted company then Electra seeing as Spanky is The Style Guru and she tried to draw a dress for the OWOH event and ended up drawing underwear too ;-)

Great template Gini. I've just joined that challenge myself so may need to come back if I can't manage a dress myself. Thanks!

Karen said...

Hi Gini, in answer to your question I just used ordinary PVA, just a cheapie and applied it with a brush, HUGS XXX
