We have been having some painting and re-doing done around our house lately. In the process, I've been doing a bit of playing! Finally! I picked up this dress form a year or two ago, and I had never done anything with it. Somewhere, I have a picture of the before, but I can't find it to save my life. :) Anyway, it was a light seafoam green before I got started. Now, with a bit of paint, Glimmer Mist and Lumiere it looks like this...
I used a load of tulle, some ribbon and a few flowers on it. I really didn't mean for it to end up looking so bridally, (is that a word?) but it fits with the decor of the room.
This is a picture of the waist. I just hot glued the flowers in place at the center of a sash of tulle. The flowers and the leaves are from Prima, except for the white one.
This is the other side of the waist. It was simple to do. I just tied lots of bows with tulle and ribbon to the iron. and bunched them up. You can also get a bit of a look at the iron in this one.
Along the bottom of the form, I looped sever layers of tulle to make a skirt. I alternated the look of the tulle detail along the scrolls. These are also a few bows crunched together to get the look.
Just one more. This is the top and a bit closer look at how the tulle mixed with the ribbons looks.
I'm just loving seeing all the dress forms that are available now. If you have altered any, I would love to see them!
