My mannequin makeover
I found this mannequin at the flea market a couple of months ago. She wasn't exactly what I was looking for, but I didn't think I would ever find an old vintage one that I could afford. So I took her home and gave her a makeover. I covered her in vintage sewing patterns then rubbed her down with some brown ink . She then needed something to wear so I made her this tulle skirt out of eight yards of material. My sewing machine was broken so I gathered it by hand then made the belt with stiff interfacing and fabric glue. I wanted her to have twig wings but that did not work out. Nothing seemed to work so I ditched the idea and now she will be wingless, but no less a heavenly body. What do you think?
