Altered Dress Form


"Paris Courtier"

As you can see I will alter anything … I decided to do a submission for Somerset Studio on the theme of Paris … when I found this rather plain dress form I couldn’t help but think of all of the wonderful dresses that have come from Paris over the centuries so I decided to take this and make it Paris ..... by adding layers of lace, ribbon, beads, charms & old costume jewelry I was able to come up with something I could see a designer presenting to her client in the mid 1800’s before the dress was constructed ….. turns out they used it in their July/August 2006 issue …… and also on their website http://www.stampington.com/html/ss_ja06_upclose.html
