When you say to someone "I'm bored, there's nothing to do" the answer favoured by parents is "there's always something to do." But I doubt they'd expect that something to be ripping and cutting up old newspapers and taping it onto your older sister (whom after about ten minutes was regretful she ever agreed to such a thing.) Making the dress took about half an hour (though I'm sure Ireland thought it a lot longer) and although I lost my patience a bit with Ireland when she kept moving, it was actually quite fun. Though the best part was taking photos, and then ripping it off:
I made the flower in her hair the day before (out of newspaper too) to match a newspaper dress currently still on a dressmaker's dummy (this newspaper dress can be removed and undamaged, unlike the one I made onto my sister.) But my dress is still a work in progress - though I'm hoping to finish it soon!
