So continuing along my posts of some of my signature creations are the romantic dress forms that I have been creating for many years. Those who have followed my website shop at Shabbyfufu are probably tired of hearing about them...lol~ but to those new readers and followers, here are just a handful and I hope that you enjoy this little "fashion show" of sorts.
Again, I have made hundreds and I am NOT KIDDING! Lots of long days and nights of working, tired eyes, dull needles and burned fingers. Maybe it's why I wear glasses, who knows.
I am a dummy and really should have started to keep a rolling count and keep all of the old photos over the many years.......but alas have not. I do remember them all though and pretty much where they went, and I have a pretty good feel for the fact that it's been somewhere between around 250 to 300. Pretty sure of that!!
There was no one else doing these when I started, first with the standing French style forms and then a few years after I started embellishing the hanging dressforms.
Early form with an antique French Limoges tea cup head...several of these were made and sold
I always enjoy incorporating a variety of embellishments, including vintage and antique fabrics and trims, vintage millinery, bits of old jewels and my own hand turned ribbon roses
One of my many hanging dress forms created here in the Shabbyfufu Studio
A pair of forms that I was working on a few years ago inspired by more of a fancy cowgirl type of theme
This one was for a customer's child. A little girl dress form with cherubs and roses. What could be more darling for a princess' room
Another hanging dress form
Custom form with pinks & blues
Early child's dress form for a client made to specs, maybe 10 years ago
Some early forms covered in layers of antique bridal lace. I have done many bridal dress forms over the years
Pink is the most requested and an ongoing theme
