Marie Antoinette Dress Cushion

I'm having a lot of fun with my 
new Toile de Jouy material.
Here is a frilly bolster with an oval panel.


A few cushions together.








Then I made this big 70 x 70cm cushion, half of it
is covered with layers of lace and a tie in the middle.
When I pulled the tie it looked like a dress with a waist.
Then... pling!! a little light bulb went on....


Now this dress has a real waist...
It still is a cushion, the top and hips are stuffed
with polyester filling.
 I overstuffed it so it can stand straight without
tipping over at the waist.
The bodice stands at 52cm high and with the 
skirt 80cm.


I used cotton and silk for the dress.




Pink Sweetness...



I hope you are having a wonderful week,
xoxo
