Altered Dress Form


I won this 16" bare dress form from Creative Imaginations last year and I've been waiting for inspiration to alter it. I first painted the dress form pink and the pedestal gold. I then pinned many sequins onto it, which was extremely difficult. I used Mod Podge and pink tissue paper to put on the rest of the dress, creating wrinkles to make it look more real. I made the skirt using over 200 individual rose pedals and a piece of fabric to make the long train. I finished it off by adding some lace, pearl buttons down the back of the dress, a pearl necklace with gold charm, and a beaded belt. Altogether, I estimate that this project took me over 6 hours to complete, but I am very happy with the results!!
