My first Moxie Fab challenge!! Petticoat Card/pleated ribbon
Here is the link to Moxie Fab. The challenge is to use pleats in an innovative way. I started on this idea on a previous post here. I was thinking that the pleated ribbon underneath the large scallop reminded me of women's clothing in the 1800's when they used to wear petticoats. Back in my theater days we had to wear petticoats and corsets when we did period acting. I will tell you those corsets are really uncomfortable! No wonder women fainted on a regular basis! I'm glad to live in modern times where jeans and t-shirts are acceptable clothing for women:) However, there is something unmistakebly feminine about a ruffly petticoat, so that was my jumping off point.
I hope you like it too! Have a great day!! -Noelle
