Just taking a quick little break from the Studio to sit down and check emails and so forth, and thought that I would do a quick post about one of the projects that I have been working on this week. I have had a few requests in the last couple of weeks for a Shabbyfufu Romantic Dressform similar to the ones that are shown in this ad that has been running in some of the decorating magazines lately.
There are many baby steps to these and they are time consuming, but something that I have been doing for ten or so years now and a real passion! All of the elements are thought out and hand made or altered (by me:-), and lots of gathered materials are used as well from years of collecting. Today I have been hand painting and dying fabrics, as the day is perfect for setting things out to dry in the sun. Antique French ribbon has been hand painted and will be sewn into ribbon roses, frilly bows and ruffles....old gown material has been dyed and is drying on the grass. I hope to finish this latest creation sometime over the weekend, as well as a zillion other things that are on the "to do list" hanging over my desk! I have to keep reminding myself........baby steps, it will all get accomplished in time.
xoxo to you,
