TPBP Dressform challenge/little snippets Design Team project #2!!

Over on the piece by piece blog there is a SUPER July challenge to alter a dressform HERE I decided to give it a go and use both some gorgeous lace from TPBP etsy store and also some of my little snippets!
Here is goes....

The dressform I bought in An Siopa Bui-its a tall paper mache dressform with wire legs-I bought 2 of them (shhhhhhh....) for the challenge I dressed this one up in a vintage dress....
 First I just painted the bodice in cream paint...
 Then I added lace from TPBP, my little snippets butterflies AVAILABLE HERE, tulle and pearls.....
 The skirt is lots of layers of cream tulle, dusty pink pin stripe lace from TPBP Etsy, little snippet butterflies and pearls....
 Coming up across the bodice and acting as a strap for my dress is this GORGEOUS ivory leaf vine venice lace also from TPBP etsy store....
 Side view....
 This is the back which I LOVE!!!!.....
 Check out that butterfly-the detail of these are just amazing....
 The other colour butterfly...
Now....I want this dress!!!!
