Mini Dressforms

I pinned something on Pinterest and actually made it!  Now that is successful if nothing else.. :)  I saw this tutorial on Pinterest, watched the video, and actually started making these on the same day.  What a fun little project.

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?
