Transformation

Sunday, October 18, 2009

I finally got around to completing one of the project pieces I brought back from my last Warrenton trip. Go back here for the before shot. This is the after shot. I used some vintage patterns from my Great Aunt and a bit of mod podge to cover the existing scratched and marred surface. Then I used a bit of Jennifer Paganelli's fabric and a vintage tape measure from my Grandmother's sewing cabinet to dress up the top. I'm not sure if I'll be keeping this one yet. When I transform the other dress form from Warrenton, I may have to choose which one stays and which one goes. For now, I'll just enjoy the process.
The skirt is a free pattern from Oliver + S. I used some vintage brown rose trim and Fabritopia's gorgeous green lace to finish it off.

  1. Wow, what a difference, looks great and I love the measuring tape around the neck. I have some of that Ginger Blossom fabric but I'm too scared to cut it LOL.

  2. I just wanted to let you know your girl arrived safe and sound at the dress form ball! She looked so cute with her tape measure bow! She was swept off to the dance floor as soon as she arrived. I promise to return her safe and sound when the ball is over. Thank you for attending!
