So I did! Here's how:
Print out the image on heavy paper - i used my favorite matte photo paper.
Trim the photo
Make a slit at the top of the dress along the neckline and the shoulders.
Cut a slit at the waistline.
Cut a slit at the hemline.
Cut two strips of fabric, one narrow for the bodice, one wide for the skirt.
Fold in the edges and use a bit of glue stick to secure.
I used a piece with the button to act as a brooch on the dress.
Slide the fabric under the slit at the neckline.
Fold or pinch the fabric and slide into the waist. adjust to cover the image and "fit".
Gather up the wide piece and slot it into the waist band. Be careful not to tear the paper.
Tuck the bottom of the fabric into the hemline slot.
Glue the image to a backing paper. I used a textured green that looks like eyelet. Trim with rick rack.
Glue to a cardstock card.
Looking at the scan, it would be better if i had run a quick stitch through the top of the skirt to make tighter gathers. But it was quick this way and looks nice and couture. Mary will love it!
