Meet Jolie!

Hi friends! Sorry I have been away so long. I have been trying to get a ton of gardening done during my days off from work. I will share pictures of my garden soon. Today I would like to share with you another mannequinn I made not too long ago. I named her Jolie-because she is French and Jolie means "pretty" in French.
 
Meet Jolie!
Jolie is a one of a kind vintage style handmade paper mache mini dress form that I created from a child size dress form. Jolie is covered in brown paper and then decorated in French themes. On her front I added a sweet vintage style butterfly with the word "Paris" above it. Also on her front is an image of the Eiffel tower. Jolie is covered in various vintage papers of flowers and other cute decor. On her very top is a unique vintage bottle opener that I found at an antique store that I surrounded with vintage rhinestones. Jolie's colors are mostly browns with black. Jolie is not hollow and I insulated her with special materials to make her a sturdy table top display.
 




If any of my fabulous readers out there are looking for a custom dress form- I do make custom orders. Contact me for more information.
