Hello fellow crafters, visitors and friends. Hope this weekend is going well for you. This cool weather is fantastic for creating! This newest dress form was also fun to create. I went to get another unpainted candle stick and found zero. So my mind went into overdrive and I purchased spindles at Lowes that are used for outside decks. I liked the curvy style to them and cut them in half to get two out of one. ( much cheaper than what I would of paid for one candle stick). I could probably get more stands if I would use the square parts of the spindle. We'll see!!
The majority of the lace on this is from a lace top. I hand sewn all of the seed beads and lace onto the dress form. Did not use glue because I wanted this form to be soft to touch. I also made the colored flowers and stick pins. The necklace is from an old piece of jewelry that I formed to make a necklace.
The base stand was painted black and I wanted it to look less harsh. I got a variety of lace trims out and decided to cover the base and stand entirely. After I did that I thought now that's too much. So after thinking and trying other stuff I imagined some vines crawling up the spindle. I think it works!!! Those flowers on the vines were actually red but I colored them with some Lindy's Stamp Gang. Also some of the flowers and leaves were painted with the same stuff.

That's all folks!! Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a fantastic weekend and Happy Crafting!!
