Either another layer of fondant or stick pearls or flowers on it.

I'd put some kind of decoration on the top like pearls or jeweled trim, then add ruffles to the skirt. The ruffles will take a while but it will add some dimension and movement to the skirt.

it seems to be out of proportion but not terminally--two different ways i can see maybe--

 

it needs a waist--i mean a doll cake can be a little weight conscious here--she flares out from her bustline out and the strands that cross over each other confuse the matter--then the lower bottom piece seems twice too long for the upper part

 

 

idk--maybe it's the photo but try looking at it that way and see if you think it's out of proportion

 

and after correcting the proportion if need be--cupcakemaker and costumeczar have great ideas--

 

you're almost there

i agree with costumeczar with adding another layer of fondant to make a ruffled skirt. i also think that you can do some piping on the bust of the dress .

ruffles are a great idea as has been mentioned--go easy on that where your skirt meets the plateau it is sitting on--you don't want them flaring out past that because you run the risk of mushing them or cracking them when you move it--

 

just make sure those bottom ruffles are flush with top the silver plateau--

 

if you feel like it--i'd love to know how it goes--no pressure--

Agree with others....It doesn't look completely verticle...top part also looks like it's leaning to the left?  Straighten that out also.  Just jazz it up...it will be fine.

@anavillatoro 1 it can be ruffled layer by layer but it would be nice if you could get the correct shape from the waist.

Thank you for the encourage words, I am afraid ruffles can be to heavy and tear apart icon_mad.gif but I like the idea
