A Dressed-up Dress Form

Good Morning everyone.  I'm back after a wonderful trip down South and we enjoyed some warm weather.  It was hard to leave the warmth but hopefully here in Michigan we should be warming up.  Every vacation has to come to an end, I guess.  Well, it's Friday and I wanted to share a little project that was really fun to do and maybe a little silly, but oh well.  I had this dress form that looked a little sad and I wanted to fancy her up.  Here is the before picture:

 She was in really good shape.

 I was up in my crafts room and was looking at all my materials and gems that I had been collecting from garage sales and estate sales.  I decided to doll her up and started by putting on a fancy and lacy bra that I had found.  Than I decided she needed a skirt.  I gathered up some yellow tulle and added some antique lace material on top and added it as a skirt.
 I covered up the waistband with some gathered yellow tulle and a green ribbon and a pretty yellow butterfly.  I added some pearls and a shabby netting hat with a big rose and some green leaves.
 I also added some of the yellow tulle around the top of the bra and under the pearl necklace.

 The lace material had flowers all over it
 And here she is.  All dressed up and a little shabby, too.  Kinda of fun.  So, what do you think?  Better or worse?  Until next time, Dianne........
