Finished Dress Form



I have completed my dress form... I have wanted to have a very old looking form but was not willing to pay the 200.00 to 300.00 they go for... I wanted something more old looking... I found this cardboard felt dress form on ebay for under 30.00 and teamed it up with the old floor lamp... It was real close getting the felt form over the lamp parts but it went on real tight but perfect and the globe lamp part fit the neck of the form perfectly.... I tucked in the old aged catalog paper in arms and neck and added a lace collar I had here and also a old aged pearl collar and a vintage brooch... Made a tag and ribbons purchased from Polly.... The old form is held together with old brass notebook fasteners... I love the look... I am thrilled to have the old lamp in use .....This will be worked in beside on of my smaller Christmas trees also.....

Hi Marietta!!
I'm just catching up on my blogging and checking in on my friends--I am LOVING your pictures of your house and all your projects! Wow! You are on a roll!
I'm getting inspired, but can't do anything 'till next week--Steve and I are leaving for San Diego Thursday to visit our best friends.
Gotta go get some ironing done!
Take care!
Hugs,
Myrna
