I made this mannequin this past week.
I fell in love with it!
I was making it to sell, but can't part with it.
It just is so beautiful to me....and speaks to me...so even though I don't need to keep it...I am going to!
It looks old, doesn't it!
I made it with tea-dyed muslin (already dyed and on a bolt at the quilt shop)....I added a ribbon sash....party streamer flower...lace, and banner that says "Enjoy".
I also added a necklace which is just a bit of chain I had laying around and the pendant is a 1928 brand earring (a loner since I lost the other earring)
I added coffee dyed cheesecloth for her skirt....and put it on her like a Marie Antoinette style skirt...puffy at the sides.
This is a brooch I had in my stash...something I don't want to wear but is perfect for my mannequin.
Here is the glass candlestick stand I changed up (I posted about this early last week)
Now it looks old ...like iron or old leather. I added a small party streamer flower with lace trims.
This is how the back looks.
She is now going to be at my side in my studio.
