A New Girl Needs A New Home

The other day, I found this lovely dolly up for sale. I have not had the privilege of seeing up and close one of these vintage dress forms. She's in very good condition and I was happy to snatch her up. However, I think she needs a new home. My poor children are starting to think these dress forms are multiplying at night when they sleep. ;)

I have a home for her, but I didn't want to give her away looking like she is, so I decided she needed a new cover. Now she looks fresher and tidier. Plus, it's stretch velvet so the dress form can be padded up to size should her new owner choose to do that.

Here is what she looked like before

Here is what she looks like now, much nicer, don't you think?

She's already to be dress up or used to drape garments on her. I think she will be very happy going to her new home. :)
