Many years ago, when I had my shop in the small tourist town that we lived in…I purchased some dress forms from a shop that was going out of business. I got 3 wicker bust forms and 1 very old large dress form. I used them at my shows for many years after I closed my shop…but over the years, the fabric on the large form is now falling apart. I had hope to redo the fabric and display her in my sewing/craft room. However…she is just too large to be displayed in there as the room is just too small. So for now, she is stored away.
Well…I had a gift card to Pier One and look at what I found there this past weekend…a small dress form that will fit in my sewing/craft room.
And a month or so ago…I found 6 bags of doilies at a thrift store that were only a $1.00 per bag.
There ended up being over 50 doilies total and I only spent $6.00 total…they sure were a great find.
So I decided to give my new dress form a transformation…and I love how it turned out.
I couldn’t bring myself to put her upstairs into my sewing/craft room just yet…so she is displayed on top of the corner fireplace in the living room for now.
Thinking that I will leave her here thru the Summer months.
Also wanted to let you all know that I will be spotlighted tomorrow over at Susan’s blog “Must Love Junk” for the Saturday Spotlight…Life Behind the Blogger series. Hope you will go over and check it out. You might learn some things you didn’t already know about me.
Until next time……. blessings, Cindy
