What you need:
- a fine needle
Supplies / ingredients:
- white napkin
- diluted potato starch or PVA adhesive
- transparent fishing line
Divide the napkin into layers. If the napkin is patterned, use only plain layers. Remember to leave some single-layer napkins for later.
Tear the rest of napkins into 1.5 inch wide strips (don’t use scissors). Now, take your wire outline and wrap it with paper strips, then cover it with the diluted starch or glue. You can also dip it into the solution.
Fold the napkin as if you were going to cut out a snowflake.
Now, take the whole napkins. Choose the right length of the dress for you ballerina and cut the napkin. The hemline should be rounded.
Curl the “dress” in two directions for the best folds.
Prepare at least two dresses for one ballerina.
Make a little hole at the top of a dress and put it on a figurine.
Take a thread and wind it around the waist of the ballerina.
