Won't You Visit The Dress Form Ball

*** this is my second post today- please refresh to see my Sweet Stamps post***

This is so exciting! I am sharing a very unusual project is a dress form!
I am linking up my project to The Polka Dot Closet Dress Form will be from February 7th-14th.
The dress form is from Barr Display.

My dress form has been decorated with many items I have been saving forever. The dress is a children's formal piece that I cut apart and used bits and pieces.
This is the top of my dress form. I started by using vintage music sheets  and printed vintage dress forms  on the sheets.The sheets were added to the dress form with mod podge.
I cut off the netting from underneath the dress and used around the neckline
This is the bottom half , I also used another section of netting around the waist. The pink satin around the waist was cut off the bottom. I used some vintage ear bobs to accent the waist.
These are a couple hat boxes I have them displayed a top in my craft room...the boxes hold antique doilies and vintage gloves.
 Can you see all the vintage pieces of jewelery I used on the top? Love pearls and these delight me to see them hanging on my first dress form.
I really wish my pictures were better but I was in such a hurry to get these photos posted. I will try to get better ones this week.
Just love this added piece for my craft room-especially in pink ,but easily removable clothes in case I feel like changing. I think I have a new addiction...can't wait to get my next dress form.
I know my craft friends that visit weekly will be thrilled to see her finely dressed!
Please take the time to stop over and visit all the wonderful people that have shared their dress forms at The Polka Dot Closet Dress Form Ball.
