~Collecting Dress Forms~

Welcome Friends~ It's a Dress Form Ball today at Carol's blog, The Polka Dot Closet and so I have a few forms to share in the fun.

From my studio, I have a black and white dress form in full size wearing a damask apron, pink, black and white scarf, vintage pearls, brooch and of course, a pink cowgirl hat dangling off her neck.

Also from my studio I have a pretty feather dress form I created using a dress form ornament that I attached to a vintage thread spool, white roses at the neckline and sequin trim.

And another studio form in pink to hold crystal supplies, bits and babbles and little ornaments used to design with.

One of my favorites is this wire from that I display with a crocheted vintage collar and it stands on a dressing chest. I love this form to hold necklaces or scarves.

For pins and also necklaces, I enjoy this dress form that was originally a pin cushion for the sewing room.

From my recent dining room redo, I have this frenchy iron dress form wearing my mother's vintage scarf, waist beads and crocheted collar and vintage dress pattern neck rose. If you would like to visit my redesigned dining room click HERE to view.

This wire dress form is a helpmate in the sewing room to hold supplies from the hooks that come off the forms front. It hangs on the wall near my sewing machine.

In my guest bedroom I display this pretty dress form above a vintage wardrobe. This one stands along with a vintage hat stand and a vintage hat from the

Lastly another favorite is this distressed ivory and iron dress form. I display this one in my shabby cottage bedroom. She is wearing a pink vintage hat and pearls.

Thank you Carol for hosting this fun party. I look forward to visiting many more participants today at the Ball.

Till next time, have fun and see you soon.
