Project

dress form

What are you most proud of? The results are even better than I expected and I think seeing my figure in the real also will be a bit of an addition incentive to shed a few pounds. And as I do, I can make another one of these so that my clothes fit as I transition. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Tear a couple of piles of paper strips ahead of time rather than having to do them all as you go.

Q&A with datt doings

Barbara Deckert asked:
I LOVE the idea of decoupaging old pattern pieces onto the form: so clever and cute! Send us pics!
datt doings answered:
Just did that today and very excited with the results. Will get some pictures as soon as it is dry. I ended up spraying it first with some Dylusions Spray Inks and then laying down selected parts of old pattern pieces. Really liked the way this process gave it a smoother, old world texture.
