All Dressed up with no where to go!

All dressed up and no where to go but right in my office!

and thats where she is going to stay!!

( No Cindy you cant have this one!!!!.... hee hee.....

This is my current project that im working on my Jeweled Vintage Millinery Dress Form who is dressed to the nines.

Since I work so much with vintage jewels and vintage millinery I thought I should make myself a dress form that has the best of both of my loves.

She isnt finished yet but I thought I would show you what I have so far.

Part of the fluffie froufie thing at her waist is part new flower
that I sell on my website
and also a wonderful old hat that I bought in Lambertville NJ a few weeks ago.
it has the most wonderful vintage flowers and feathers on it I couldnt bare to take it apart and liked it right on her waist to accent it so there it will stay!
I put the vintage jewels and vintage collar on the fluffiest fluffy ruffle created from the bottom of the vintage prom dress.

I adorned her neck with some of my favorite vintage necklaces and jewels and the most I beautiful vintage pearl collar.
I added the blue to the top to connect the top with the bottom.

Im not going to do too much more with the body of her since I really want the star of the show to be the jewels, the floofie froufie feathery thing and of course the beautiful bottom so I think im going to look for a pretty soft white lace to cover her body in.
Ill post more pics when im done with her along with
more pictures of my office which has also gone through a makeover that ill be posting soon.
I cant wait to show you more but Im putting her
on hold for a while because Im working on some special order vintage millinery dress forms for a few of you and also some frame orders so im catching up.
Stay tuned....
Same bat channel!

I did a quick intake of air (Gasp!) when I saw this! GOR-GE-OUS! You are so talented and I can't WAIT to see her finished!

Awesome pix of the trip to NY. You have a lovely family and your son's plaid suit is just too cute!

LOVE LOVE LOVING the bathroom redo! One can never have too many roses, can they? I think leave the mirror gold. It's looks so rich and elegant in gold.
