This past fall while doing a show in Chicago we saw one of our fellow dealers sell a dress form that they had stripped of it's fabric and had mod podged. So I made up my mind that the next dress form I came across I would get such a project a try. In addition, I had found a blog site this Fall that had 1000's of free vintage clip art called "The Graphics Fairy". I was interested in doing a project that would let me down load some of this wonderful art work.
A couple of weekends ago we were visiting CJ's sister in southern Michigan. Her sister has a wonderful old house that dates to the 1860's and that has had a dance studio added to the back of the house. In some of the closets are old dance school dresses and costumes. Hiding behind a dress in one closet was a dress form. After a brief conversation I became the owner of the dress form.
