I've quit fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.

It's just fabric; we can out-think it.

Wow. Those look like more work than if the person had used fabric. Thanks for the link.

Fabulous, thanks for posting the link.

Paper wow. I think in about 1966/67 as kids we had paper dresses for a while, then my mother got sense LOL

Nothing like these though :)

Absolutely amazing! These do come up from time to time and I am always stunned by the beauty and detail. There is apparently a long history of paper dressmaking so I guess we have always had a hankering to try it just to see if it works.
