vintage dress forms

I purchased this vintage dress form at a flea market about 15 years ago. I think it was about 12 dollars…..pretty cheap, even back then. I had big plans for it at the time but never really did anything with it. So I finally got it out of the basement and put it in the family room, to see if I felt inspired to dress it up somehow.

Dress forms fit perfectly in  French inspired décor that’s so popular now. I don’t really have that décor in our family room…..actually I’m still waiting to get the slipcovers so I can finish up in there.



I love how the dress form looks in this office space.



Here’s an example of a dress form decoupaged with book pages.

I love the look of old necklaces displayed on this dress form.

My dress form isn’t the prettiest example but it’s still pretty cool…if I can ever decide what to do with it! I’ll figure it out eventually.


This week I’m in TN with my older daughter and granddaughter visiting my younger daughter and her family. We were expecting warm weather but it’s cold with a chance of snow flurries. I hope the sun shines mid week so we can get outside and play, staying in the house is making us all crazy. Confused smile
