Dress Form

I love all the altered dress forms I see
Awhile back my freind and I decided to try one
I had no idea what I wanted to do with mine
So I just started to play
I haven't done anything
With book pages, but so love the look
So on it went


She has a vintage lace scrarf with a
A vintage earring brooch
Layers of trim to the bottom of her dress


My friend made me this teeny tiny
Mona Lisa necklace for my form

Her heart is a altered piece of the same
Book page
And yes I planned the letters to be upside down


I had this swirly pearls in my stash
So on it went
I loved it!!
So Fancy Schmancy!!



Then I was gonna play with some stamps
I did this Eiffel tower stamp
And every one laughed like I did a funny
But, I put it on the only flat spot she had
What is so funny?

It looks like a rear end at a distance..
They say

Hahaha!
 I couldn't have planned that!!


I mounted her on a crystal vase and added
A glass door knob to the top

She needs a red bow on the
Back below the buttons
And I think she will be done
And ready to display in
My Studio
I am glad my friend
Asked me to do this
I really liked playing with the
New stuff and getting my
Stash onto something so fun
She is so my style!!

Happy Crafting
DeeDee

I have always wanted a 'real' dress form but that dream will have to remain just that because my new studio is too small for such a thing. Seeing yours reminded me that I had saved a pattern from somewhere for a pincushion sized one - hmmm....wonder where I put it??

Beautiful! And, yes, I noticed where the Eiffel Tower was!
