Playing Dress Up

by - March 05, 2013

I just love dress forms, don't you?!  I have about 20 in the house of varying sizes.  Some are fabric; some are metal.  I think I have one in just about every room in the house.  Here is my newest one:

Someone posted a lovely dress form template on Pinterest.  I used it to make this cardstock tag that measures a little under 8.5" x 11".  First, I printed it out onto regular white paper.  Then I cut it out to use as my template.  I printed out the French script onto #80 cardstock and then traced the dress form cut-out onto the cardstock.
After I cut it out, I had the perfect dress form "canvas" to work with.  I used some ruffle fabric to make her dress.  At the top of the ruffles, I added some vintage lace for the "belt" and topped it off with a hand-stamped button which also has French script on it.
I added some rhinestones for a faux necklace of sorts.  Use a hole puncher to pop a hole in the top and add some twine to hang.

Isn't she sweet?
