Valentine's Day Dress Form

So I had this little dress form that I found here in Korea when I visited the fabric district in Seoul.  She is a sweet little girl and I decided (at least for now) to decorate her for Valentine's Day. 

Here she is again.

The first thing I did was run some pink tulle through the sewing machine with my widest stitch so that I could gather the tulle fabric. Then I simply wrapped it around her and pinned it in the back.  

Then I added a pretty Korean ribbon around her waist. 

Then a bow...

Okay so then I realized she needed a top, seriously...

So I took some tulle and pinned it to the back middle and pulled it over her shoulders and pinned it in the front. Then I reattached the pretty bow. 

Then I went digging in my ribbon box and found this fabulous pink ribbon with the words Happy Valentine's Day printed on it, how lucky was that...

Oh and I found a stack of Valentine's Day heart shaped doilies!!!

Now she has wings!!!

To bad I can't find a small bow and arrow...

I added a pretty red one to the front under her ribbon.

Now she was all dressed and ready to go on display for Valentine's Day!
isn't she lovely...

I have hit a milestone, this is my 350th blog post!!!
I have had my blog now for almost 7 years.  It amazes me to go back and look at some of my first post. It is like having a memory book that you can go back and look through and remember. So glad to be here and still going strong. I appreciate everyone that follows me and all the wonderful people I have met and my beautiful blog friends. Here's to many more post!!!

I truly am happy to be back blogging and I am having so much fun!!!   I am enjoying visiting everyone and I so appreciate you visiting me.  

Just in case I don't get a new post up before Valentine's Day, I want to take this chance to wish you, 

Happy Valentine's Day!

  4. Lovely! I just love how you can zip zip zip a little ballet tutu skirt in a jiffy! I'd still be trying to figure out how to set my machine on the widest stitch! LOL.

    Congrats on the 350th! It amazes me too, how long I've been blogging. I hope you'll share some of your Limoges porcelain with my "Let's Talk Vintage" link party next week (or sometime in the future)!

  5. She is such a lovely dress form - marvelous size and shape, and what a grand model she makes, too. You're adorned her gorgeously and brought out the best of the feminine palette that Valentine's Day has to offer. Wonderful work!

    *PS* That floral print ribbon is stunning!

    1. Thank you dearest Jessica, I had so much fun putting her together. I have so many serendipitous moments when I am creating things. I started out making her to plt brooches on and somehow she became a Valentine's Day decoration??? She may still yet become a display for some of my favorite brooches but for now I love how she turned out. Gentle hugs, Beverly

      PS: I know right!!! I was digging in my ribbon box (which happens to be a 1950's breadbox) and I found that ribbon and that is how this all happened.....


Thank you ever so kindly for visiting Tea Cottage Pretties.
