While visiting the Vintage Marketplace Show in Hendersonville, TN, I saw this dress form display in Jackie’s space from Shambora Studio. I loved her booth!!! So shabby chic and fabulous vignettes. I knew I had to try to make one for my space at the Gaslamp Antique and Decorating Mall in Nashville.
Here’s the inspiration from Shambora Studios.
The supplies I purchased to try to make this lovely dress form: chicken wire, fabric, lace, accessories.
I cut the chicken wire and shaped it like a dress form (note to self - wear gloves next time). Cut the fabric into strips and start tying, alternating rows for the skirt. I used fabric for the bodice because I didn’t have lace. Then I added a doily and vintage necklace.
And four hours later, ta daaaa!
I was so excited seeing the finished shabby chic creation! I love it!! I added a doily, a hankie, and a necklace to finish it off. I have a mink stole that I’m also going to add. I can’t wait to find the perfect spot for it in my space.
As always, thanks for reading my blog!
