Thank you sooo much for your amazing comments on my

first DRESS UP FRAME project!

I have frame #2 to share with you today!

Dress frame 1

I know what you are thinking... this girl never grew up... she's still playing with Paper Dolls... well, I guess so! :)

The secret to these ADORABLE dresses is the


You can view these on pg 32 of the Spring Catalog,

or online here.  It's amazing to think about the amount of pleasure these simple $24.95 framelts have brought me!

Here are some close ups and details on each dress.

Dress up tea for two 1This dress is cut from a piece of Designer Paper from the Tea for Two DSP package.

You can see all the patterns on pg 3 in the Spring mini catalog, or HERE ONLINE.

I added a row of pearls at the waist and a Flower brooch.

cuteness, right?

 The difference between this set of dresses and my first frame, is that for these dresses i mounted them on the Dress Form that is a part of the Framelit set.  I cut them out of Basic Gray cardstock.


I cut a doily for an apron for this dress, and the dress is cut out of a piece of DSP from the Print Poetry Paper Stack. 

Victoria Lace Crochet trim and Cherry Cobbler Twine finish off the waist.

Doesn't this just look like something from the 30's or 40's?

 BELOW:  This dress also features the Print Poetry Designer Paper Stack... the dress is cut in 2 pieces and "pieced" together at the waist, under the Midnight Muse ribbon sash.

The fun print just speaks for itself on this one!  Dress up print poetry dsp blue

 OK, I will admit.. I thought this was mighty clever and really thinking outside the box (or outside the dress!)...

THIS cute little cocktail dress is actually the Gossamer Lace stamp cut out with the dress framelit!!

I know..

I know..

too fun!

Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding ribbon and a flower cinch up the waist and a sweetheart necklace of pearls completes this sweet outfit!

I love the Gossamer Lace dress..... makes me want to go shopping! Didn't see myself buying this at first, but now I NEEEEED it!


Patty, you've done it again! I love them all - if I had to choose one it would be #2.. Two ladies that you know played paper dolls yesterday. We had so much fun !


Patty, these are beautiful! I am planning on making some of these dresses today. Thanks for the idea and inspiration! My favorite is the cocktail dress. I am going to case it in black, since it reminds me so much of a dress I had for my senior prom!


You are always so creative and have so many great ideas. To pick only one, I have to choose the midnight muse dress. I plan to make the frame with dresses to hang in my sewing area. Thanks for your great ideas.

Cindy Henry

Patty, your dresses are so cute !! You are so clever and talented. I really like the Gossamer Lace one ~ looks like a fancy evening dress. A class would be so much fun! Thanks for sharing your fabulous idea.

Carol Carriveau

This is without a doubt the very best framelits that SU! Has given us...at least til my whale set comes today!...and I bought four frames last week to make my version...thank you, Patty! And I have to say that of course these are so much prettier in person!


Love all of them...you are so creative!! If I had to choose, I especially like the blue one in the middle. I'm still on the fence about these framelits...I really don't want to get into the expense of the pop-up dies or even the stamp set...but you've made me at least consider the possibilities of this product. Can't see what else you do with it!!


I like the Midnight Muse dress the best, but all very cute! Love your idea of the class, planning one myself!! TFS!!

Denise Tretheway

I sure wish I could come to your class! This stamp set and framelit is the best ever! I think we should all be able to play "paper dolls". Remember those??? How fun it was, and how fun this is going to be, doing almost the same thing! I can't wait to have time to work with it. Soon, I hope. Finishing up things for my Valentine club, and on to this... I'm going to use it for Mother's Day. I want to move to CA so I can come play dolls with you...

I also thought I could live without this one.....but I was wrong after I saw all the wonderful cards and pictures being made. Now I own it *L*. I love both your pictures and one of these days.....I just might try one. Thank you for the inspiration.


The poetry dress is the best! It is so perfect! Did I mention it is the best? :) I'd wear it!

Connie Smith

Jackie Warchol

I love them all...but my favorite is the Gossamer dress....I can't wait to make them...

Kim Pebley

I think they are all adorable... the blue one caught my eye for some reason..makes me what to dress up for party!
Thank You for sharing...


I love all of these! They remind me of the wonderful hourglass shaped dresses worn post WWII, when women wanted to be ultra feminine for their men back from war.

Mary Roberson

Hi Patty,

Yep, these dresses do bring back memories! Seems like my mom and aunts always had an apron on;) My favorite is the red lace.
I'm shocked that is a stamped red piece of cardstock! Super project, hope you do more!

Karen B.

My favorite is . . . all of them! You amaze me! Thank you for showing off the Dress Up Framelits so spectacularly!

Rose Curtis
