Vintage Dressform with Marie Antoinette

Pearls, lace, paper, and wire.....bringing vintage back

Some call it shabby chic

I love all of those things coming together and creating a look like no other.

I have created these before for a wedding show and gave you a mini tutorial HERE

I don't buy my forms, I make them myself.

There are so many ways to have fun with these. I even made some for a barn show and sold them there.

One had silver spoons hanging around the waist. You can get as creative as you want with these by adding fun items.

This one I added a Marie Antoinette piece.

It is filled with tulle and vintage doilies. I ruffled vintage music sheets and added it to the wire.

Leaving it somewhat whimsical by not filling every space. I added some pearls and a paper flower.

I then created a Marie Antoinette faux pocket watch  to dangle at the waste.

I downloaded this picture from The Graphics Fairy to help create it

It is just what the form needed. It added a little color with the vintage aged pink crepe paper.

....................and she adds to the artsy look....just an embellishment

Tutorial HERE

She will look adorable in a store window or in a brides room.

For now she sits in my corner.......waiting to be named so she can go to the ball

What would you name her?

UPDATE: There has been many wonderful suggestions but I have chosen one...

Doileen.....thanks Julia

Have a great week!

She looks like the Belle of the Ball. How about Reigning Beauty?


Julia @ Vintage with Laces said...

She's a beautiful lady. I love her doily top. How about Doileen?

Sissie's Shabby Cottage said...

Hi Deneen,
I love her! I once made a mannequin using the chicken wire and I can attest that it isn't easy! She's a beauty and will surely be the belle of the ball.

I love the name Julia gave her..."Doileen!"

Oh Deneen,
She is beautiful. And how awesome that you made her yourself. How about Bella Marie for a name? It was nice meeting the both of you :-)

Hugs and Kisses,

Robin at The Primitive Hutch said...

You are a true artist, oh my unique, creative, I can't find enough adjectives to describe your form. I will tell you when she arrived at ball, all eyes were on her!!! What a great idea and your tutorial was great! Thank you so much for attending the ball. I would just name her...FABULOUS!


Irene Helms Designs said...

Beautiful! How about Juliette as her name?

Carmenann said...

It looks great!!!! Call her Che Bella (how beautiful).....

miss flibbertigibbet said...

I love that! Making your own form is something that never occurred to me! I may have to do this for the shop so I don't have to take my Coco in's cold and drafty and she catches cold easily.....

Donna@AllthingsMing said...

My sister would just die for this ...she has a whole shabby chic business on ebay ...i can not wait to show her11

Donna@AllthingsMing said...

Her name truly must have Beauty added as she is stunning. What a creative artist you are and such a unique dress form you styled. I know she is the belle of the Ball.
Have fun,
Hugs, Celestina Marie

She is absolutely incredible girl. How you knew how to make a dress form who knows but you sure did it. She would be great in a girls room also. Girls could dress her up and down as often as they wished. What fun they'd have. You are a very talented lady. I'm envious. Happy Days

Deneen@dreaming-n-color said...

That is a great idea. Little girls would love this. Don't be envious. It took a lot of trial and error to make it work for me. Like anyone when you have a vision you try to perfect it. I will keep making it better. Thanks so much for being here!
