So I started with Anne of Cleves, because I think she has some of the more interesting dresses of the six. After a false start with shiny red and gold gift bags (which were deemed too easy and too pretty), I used newspaper, some thin cardboard, pot scrubbers, and a few pennies to make my version of the dress.
I ended up making her some arms out of the chicken wire so I could drape the sleeves. There was something creepy about that, but they did the trick! I loved making something out of paper and hot glue! A nice change from fussy fabrics and tiny stitches. What do you think? Did I make it work?
