Here are my creations for the 3 groups-- Designer's choice, Fall and TV/Movie Star.

 Theme #1 was for Fall/ Thanksgiving so I decided to do an Indian. After doing a sample tag and checking with a friend, I was told it was too FLAT!!! Being a newbie to Dress Form Tags, I figured I'd better listen
So back to the drawing board I went.

Here is my finished  Fall Tag. I used a tag from TBBM cartridge and made it the same size as the TH ones that everyone uses. The dress form was taken from the Nifty Fifities cartridge. I cut 2 each of the dress form and the outfit adhereing them together to add dimension. The dress is made out of suede paper and I added a few beads.  I used my Cuttlebug for the pumpkin, chalked it and used a pop-up glue dot to adhere it to the tag.

The next group I joined was themed TV Shows/Movies, Celebrity etc

For this one, I choose to do the dress that Miley Cyrus wore to the 2009 Oscars. First is a picture of her dress and then my Tag. (I hadn't decided on my ribbon yet)I really like how it came out.. I layered lace for her dress and then added silver stickles to it. I put a band of ribbon and a brad on the waistline On the tag, I printed out an “Oscar” image off the internet and popped it up. On the other side I use some TH film strip. I found out that my ATG doesn't work well on lace. I changed to Fabri-Tac which worked great!!!

Here is my last tag!!! This was for the Designer's Choice category. I choose to make a summer dress and I included a straw hat! I used some leftover material  for the dress and  added pink lace for a belt and straps. I also used the ribbon on the hat and added some tiny pink flowers to both the hat and dress.

So there are my 3 Dress form tags!!! Thanks for joining us!!!

Getting the right dress usually starts with shopping intelligently. To shop intelligently doesn't mean simply shopping for price. It has to do with being able to tell quality from not, whether in the workmanship of your formal dresses, or in the richness of their fabric.
