French Charm - White Wednesday











My newest antique dress form.... a Wolf with a cage bottom.  
I LOVE her! 
What a wonderful find.
She stood a bit tall.... so, I decided to remove the pole and stand.  She's the perfect height resting directly on the wire cage.
She needed dressing up.  I wanted to create a French feel.  First I added an antique lace collar and some vintage rhinestone and pearl necklaces.   Then layered on a handmade muslin and vintage lace bag.  The bag needed a little something, too.....  so, I added a vintage pin to the center of the fabric & lace flower.
I made a belt with a large flower from a piece of vintage Ilet fabric.  
To hide the hole (top of neck) where the pole inserts....  I added some antique lace.
She is just gorgeous!

Have a wonderful day!
Elizabeth
