JUST TO WARN YOU NOW - THIS IS A PICTURE HEAVY POST - A TON AT LEAST!!
So I started to make up some of the flowers in the kit and thought also about how I wanted to use the gorgeous papers that come in the kit.
So lets start with the paper... roll strips around a pencil....
stick two together....
now add some vintage lace to the bottom... of the dress form
now start adding the rolled up paper around the dress form to make the skirt!
now for the top and waist I added some pretty ribbon to hide the top of the skirt. I then used more ribbon and vintage lace to make a little top!
and now for one of the flowers from the kit... can you see I've also attached some oh so cute "tape measure" ribbon that I had in my stash - I thought it added a nice touch!
Now it wouldn't be something I've made without the added "sparkle" would it?!!
and here is the back with a pretty bow...
and a scrunched flower
Some more views...
Can you tell I was having fun with my camera!!!
And finally back on the shelf - but this time looking all pretty!! (mind you look at the contrast in colour from the previous photo as its not by the window....)
I really hope that you like this post as much as I did altering this dress form! Sorry for all the photos (don't know about you but I love looking at and taking photos - ha ha!!)
Thought I might enter my dress form into this challenge:-
