Then I cut out three circles - 7" x 7", 9" x 9" and 11" x 11" which makes up the three layers of the stand. Cut in slits on the top so that I can put them in place on the dress form stand. Top layer is silver, middle is red and the bottom is black.
Nothing is glued into place or secured and that is why it looks all a bit wobbly and off balance. I unfortunately cannot put this together permanently as it has to be posted to South Africa!!
The next step is adding lace and trim with sequins to the edge of each layer.
ONCE AGAIN WHAT WAS I THINKING!!! Does not matter how much work and time it took to make enough (100 odd) roses, I really like the outcome and am glad that I lost sanity for a day and made all these roses:
Please let me know what you think!!
