I did and she offered me her dress forms, her boyfriend had salvaged them from the dumpster out back and they no longer needed them....AWESOME!!
Now, I'm not allowed to show you the before pictures because I promised her I wouldn't (logo on them), so here is the finished pictures.
|It's a size 14 (now I'm really a 16 right now, but working my way down!!).|
|I used vintage (25yrs) dictionary pages and Gold Glimmer Modpodge to cover it with.|
|I watered down the Modpodge to make it easier to work with, it makes the form glow. I had fun with the pages, putting the definition of "First Base" on her upper right breast, hahah!|
|This is the other form she gave me, it's a size 14 bust! I did the same with this one and it's perfect for showing off jewelery or scarves. Notice my newest creation, apparently they are all the rage, those ribbon pearl necklaces.|
|That necklace cost $2 to make!! and about 45 minutes of my time. Love it so much I am going to make another in red.|
|I usually stand it on a stool when I want to work on altering something, I'm quite happy with the results.|
I'll be linking to these great blogs,
