Finally...the completed dress form





Some of you may remember that I was given this full sized tailor's dress form at Christmas from a friend, Gerri-anne. I finished the bodice almost immediately but have been futzing around with the rest.

I had declared this week, FINISH THINGS LEFT UNDONE WEEK, and this was at the top of my list. I still have not decided how to trim the hem but for now I am calling it done.

It is constructed entirely of tissue paper, ribbons, assorted flowers and bling and ribbons that I already had in my stash. The only purchase I made to construct this was a pack of the purple tissue paper I found at the dollar store. There is no stitching involved...just double sided tape and glue dots.

Moving on to my next Finish Things Left Undone project so watch this spot and many thanks for looking.
