A few weeks ago my friend Tonya,who owns the CraftyHands Craft shop locally to me,asked me if I would alter a dress form for her shop,she wanted one to put on display.
Due to other commitments at the time I wasn't able to start it straight away, but that was ok as it wouldn't be going in the shop until after the New Year, maybe as late as Spring Time.
I had some free time over the weekend and decided to make a start and ended up finishing it altogether,lol.
The pleated organza and lace was added using hot glue, as well as adding the lace around the neck.
Finally I added the feathers,flowers and stick pins to finished the dress form...once that was finished I mounted it on it's stand and then added the embellishments to the base.
I chose the orange flowers as I wanted the whole piece to "pop", this colour seems to work better than the reds,pinks or blues.
I took this over to Tonya today and she was thrilled with it, its safely in her office for now until she displays it in the shop.
