Well, that blue fabric had to go. It was a foam backed synthetic fabric and the foam had degraded so Sheila was leaving piles of sand-like substance wherever she was put.
I removed the old covering and gave her a good scrub in the shower to get all the 'sand' off.
I mentioned that I wanted to try some decoupage on her. Let me show you my inspiration!
This is by Ellinee from Ellinee journal where she gives a helpful tutorial too! Vintage sheet music! So beautiful!
Vintage dress patterns used to give a corset effect! Isn't that great? This one is by Louise at
But I think the one I shall try to emulate, given the shape and style of my dress form is this one.
which is a lovely blog, so much eye candy...
Thank you ladies for giving me permission to show your images!
Back to Sheila:
She's stripped and waiting! But I'm very overwhelmed as the wooden flooring has arrived, I have to empty the living room and rip off the skirting boards, I have to decorate behind a radiator that's off, and Christmas is coming. So don't hold your breath....
