So, while waiting for the new catalog, I'm using some papers that were favorites this year. Flirtatious DSP is among those! Have also been thinking of Mother's Day so here's today's card.

Round Tab punch
I created the top of the dress using the Round Tab punch and re-punched it with the rounded side of the punch to create the sides of the bodice.
Skirt: Begin with a 4" x 2" piece of DSP. I scored at 1-3/4" and 2-1/4" to create the center pleat, then scored 1/4" out from each of those score lines, but at a bit of an angle. Score again 1/2" out from those score lines, then at 1/4" once again at a bit of an angle. Trim sides of dress at an angle. Nothing fancy - just kind of did it as I went and forgot to take pictures. Oops!
I would suggest working from the center out when scoring and then crease alternately front and back as you work towards the edge.
I think this would look great if the hem were trimmed with a bit of lace or tuille.... or something! Enjoy!
