I bought this frenchy toile type fabric forever ago and never had a use for it until now. I actually made 2 of the dressforms from 1 fat quarter, although I think the supply list called for a 1-1 ratio. To boot, I was able to combine this project with a stop at my local antique shop to snag a pair of vintage silver candlesticks. To add to their (ahem) charm, I left them unpolished for the "vintage" look. $8 for the pair.
Below is a picture of my little dressforms in profile. Can't you tell I'm a quilter? My ability to sew curves leaves these little beauties a bit flatter in the waist and bust than they should be. An unfortunate echo of my real life figure. ♥ my children!
Nonetheless... :) I am pretty happy with how they came out. They are supposed to be pincushions, but I plan to display jewelry on them. What are you up to this weekend?Pin It
