Carol's Dress Form Ball...
Our household is very excited this week as some of us are attending Carol's Dress Form Ball. You really will want to click her link and see all the wonderful attendees. Thank you very much Carol for hostessing this Second Annual Ball. The beautiful white and blue carriage arrived to pick up Vintage Janey. Here she is wearing her finery. Vintage Janey is shy and didn't want you to see her undressed. She is aging and there are bits of her that are a tad out of alignment and even a smidgen droopy. So she prefers to wear vintage clothing from my Grandmother's Aunt Flossie. The jacket is all hand sewn sequins and as beautiful as a mermaid could ever wish for.
Now we have a tiny tabletop paper mache torso mannequin. This was purchased to display some jewelry pieces I create. However it merely sat in the cupboard for a couple of years and never was decorated. Then my friend Judy of jfabrications gave me the push I needed and here she is covered in pattern tissue.
Thank you Judy for helping me focus and finish this. You will also want to see all of Judy's fabulous dress forms attending the ball. Now meet Ms. Vogue. She wanted so much to attend the ball however she had nothing to wear. I told her a proper lady would not go in her foundation piecing. So she put on her pearls.
Here is GiGi in her ball gown. Sadly I explained to her that she will be working at the ball attending to the ladies and their needs. After all GiGi is a proper French Maid. With great dignity she understood and is just ecstatic to be able to be at Carol's Estate and enjoy all of the beautiful surroundings and happenings and see what the Ladies of Finery are wearing.
Now I am off to enjoy the ball from here. I shall be a voyeur and secretly wishing I could be there all dressed up and dancing the night away.
I must hurry as I am late and the ball has begun...
