The skirt is very full. The best effect can be gained by using two or three ruffled skirts, one above the other. The bodice and the pompons are made of Decorated Crepe.
To make the pompoms follow the instructions on the How to Make Pompoms page, cutting the paper 10 inches wide. The hat is made of two pieces of black card board fastened together at the sides to make the correct head size. Check out the Crepe Paper Hats page for tips on making the hat.
