Dress Form tag Swap Theme: Television Show/Movie/Famous Person

Once again I have ventured to participate in a swap with a topic I have never done before.  Dress form Tag, wow, they are cute and I know I could do something.  Right out of the gate I wanted to do something with the brown dress from Pretty Woman(the brown polka dot dress, Julia Roberts wore tot he Ascot), I had to find the brown polka dot paper!  Luck was on my side - Archivers has two sizes of the polka dots large and small, I picked up a couple of pieces of each paper.  The paper is chocolate and Ivory dot Reverse and Chocolate and Ivory Mini dot reverse by Canvas Corp.

I researched the Movie and realized that the video had pink basic letters down the right side, I had to find a basic font, Luckily I found the font I wanted to use on the Birthday Cakes Cartridge.
I pretty much made the top of dress and the crinoline under the skirt and the skirt by hand.  The hat, gloves, and shoes were cut from Forever Young, the purse was cut from Everyday Paper dolls - then I cut the center out to make it look similar to the Dooney purse Julia carried.   The one thing I would change is the black "snap" I would have liked to use a darker brass color.

The basic tag is Ranger #8 manilla, covered with White Linen background paper
The dress form is Tim Holtz, I covered with a cream and white  tapestry print paper from DCWV
 I used a fine sandpaper to sand the edges of the paper on the dress form die.
I chalked the edges with creative memories brown, usually I use color box chestnut roan.
