I picked this dress form up at a little local shop awhile ago. She "appears" to be sort of vintage but I'm not sure. She stands about 35 inches tall.
Anyway, this dark pink with the hideous flowers just wasn't doing it for me....
So that being said, I decided it was time for a mini makeover.
First things first...I
ripped removed the flowers from her bodice
Then I gave her a couple coats of white gesso
Added some clear beads where the flowers were
Added new lace trim to her bottom area
She now wears a vintage doily as a "shawl"
And then...I just strung around her waist some vintage laces and ribbon with of course a skeleton key and tag
And to finish her off, I gave her a little crystal beaded necklace.
Let me know what you think of her...
I just love the soft colors (whites, creams, peach, and blue)
She may land in my space at the "shop" or maybe she'll hang out in my bedroom for awhile.
Either way, I'll be linking her up to Kathleen's Faded Charm for another White Wednesday....
