I thought I would share with you my collection of table top dress forms. I started collecting them purely by accident.

These cute little ones, were given to me as a gift from my friend Dianne. The shorter one is really a little box you can store tinny treasures.

The pretty white wire one below, my friend Penny gave me for Christmas. I put some pretty pink fabric inside to make it look like she is waring a dress.

I found the pretty white one, which you see below, while at my favorite quilt shop. She just called out to me, wanting to go home with me. I put some antique lace & trims on her, but I think I need to send her to Char, at Somewhere in Thyme, to fancy her up, because Char makes such pretty things.

So since I have started collecting dress forms, it wasn't any wonder when I saw the pattern from Fig Tree & co. of Madeline, that I had to make it for my sewing room. I made her with Rouenneries fabric by French General because the day I first saw this fabric line, I knew I had to have it. I am so happy how she turned out.

I just need to quilt it when I get some free time.

Thank you for stopping by.
