Meet Nanette!

Meet Nanette!
Nanette is a one of a kind vintage style paper mache dress form I handmade from a Victorian wasp waist dress form. Nanette is covered in hand cut vintage sheet music era 1920-1930's. Across her bust, there is an image of a woman from a vintage musical with the words "No No Nanette." Nanette is also decorated with several paper butterflies that I hand punched. Nanette's primary colors are white, black, blue, orange and brown paper bag on her very bottom. Around her waist, I tied a vintage orange colored seam binding that I hand stamped with a musical note pattern (this is removeable). Nanette is not hollow inside and she has been insulated with special materials which make her sturdier, however she is still pretty lightweight. The very bottom of Nanette is covered in brown paper bag. Nanette has been sealed for her protection with a matte sealer and has a slight sheen to her. Nanette is listed as "new" meaning she is a new creation, but made from vintage and recycled materials.
Just like a real woman, Nanette is not perfect and you should expect some individual character to her. She does however make the perfect table top display!
Nanette's approximate measurements are as follows:
Height: 27"
Neck:  13"
Shoulders: 35"
Waist: 24.5"
Bust: 36"
