Rockabilly Gal All Dressed Up

After thinking about this summer, I realized I was on a dress form kick.  What could I do with another one?  Do I have room for another one?  Well I added a few to my collection but, I decided to redress one of the ones I already had.  That is the fun thing about these treasures, they are so versatile. 

This gal has been holding a wreath and changed for the seasons for many years.

She actually has a bronze finish on her and is attractive on her own.

The colors in this vintage crinoline just worked with the bronze finished dress form so I decided to dress her.

I made a top out of a vintage lace square tablecloth.  
Then added a golden yellow velvet rose with pieces of vintage fabric to hold her slip up to see the multi colors of netting that are original to the crinoline.
The brown crocheted gloves are attached with a glove pin.
A Victorian lace collar was added with two blue rhinestone closures for straps.
The suede belt and suede hat with a feather just finishes off the outfit.
I guess her Victorian boots will have to stay for a while since there is a bird nesting there.

She is now 
"All Dressed up with No Place to Go".....
(that could be a country western song)
