Dress Form Redo

Today I'm joining the Polka Dot Closet for a dress form party!

In 2011 I showed my dress for makeover but I can't seem to find the close up photo.
These will have to do for now.

I started out with just the torso ... without a stand.
It was not this dress form, but the one below. I just wanted to show you how it sat on a table, without a pole. This particular dress form is in my shop currently.

Now here is a photo of my dress form, in our antique booth.
We took a lamp stand and used it as the base!

Spray painted it silver to match the metal supports/frame in the mannequin.

And voila, a dress form became new again!

I'm happy to report, it sold!

Check out the other dress forms at the big party going on over at the Polka Dot Closet.
Should be a fun time at Carol's place today!

Fun re-do and SOLD, too! My dress form is like the one you have in your shop - only I have the base. Never see her like that, though - dressing her this year for the seasons. It was fun linking up with the ball!

Cute! And clever to put it on a lamp stand! Going to hop over to the party.

Congrats on the sale with your ingenuity! I would have dressed her up & hoped for the best! She would likely have remained in my shop forever!

I love the idea of a lamp stand for a base, very creative!

No small wonder that she was sold, she was simply to pretty to pass up on, I know I would have scooped her up ;)
