Vintage Dress Form

Hi .. I thought I would show you our latest find. It is this lovely vintage dress form.

I took her home and dressed her all up. I would like to eventually find a vintage corset for her... but for now this will have to do.

I'm not sure where her permanent place will be yet. What do you think ...do you feel that a dress form should be limited to a bedroom or craft room? I don't like to follow decorating rules ... so I guess she could end up anywhere:)

I used some anything clips and hung cute bird prints on the bottom of the form.

Here is a close up of the little sewing machine charm and Fossil bird cage charm , that were gifts from my 14 yr old daughter ... aren't they cute:)

  3. Hi Francine,
    I just found your blog via Timewashed. I wanted to tell you I think your Header statement is something I need to take to heart. That is how I want my home to be decorated. It is very important to remember. I am taking some time now to read through your other posts and look at your Pinterest.

  4. Oh, she is just gorgeous! I love the vintage dress forms, especially the ones with the cage, you are soooo lucky! Have fun with her.

  5. She's marvelous - love how you've dressed her - the most exquisite dress form I have ever seen! I am delighted that you shared your lovely post with A Return to Loveliness,

  8. Congrats on being featured on Make It Pretty Monday! I can SO see why this was highlighted - it's beautiful. What a dream to own that.


  9. She is lovely and I love her in the Living Room!!! I have my Audrey in our front formal living area and I adore her in there. We moved her there during a Tea Party we had and I liked her so much in that room that I left her there. I believe we should surround ourselves with what we love and we can decorate in anyway that makes us happy. Your girl looks beautiful!!! Hugs, Beverly
