Dress Form Escapades


The big day is finally here!

It's time for Carol's Dress Form Party over at The Polka Dot Closet.


When I reminded Violet Ann that it was time to get ready,
she ran to my tea cabinet, and started pulling out tea cups.


'We'll have a sweet tea party for our guests', she said.


She was disappointed when I told her that we are not having a party,
we're going to a party.



After trying on several different outfits, she settled
on the new lace dress I made for her.


(you know things have gotten out of hand when you realize
that your dress form has more clothes than you do)


She was finally dressed and ready to go......


when she suddenly decided that since it was a party, she should wear a hat.


Oh......


I was trying, very gently, to explain to her that she doesn't have a head......


when from behind me, I heard, 'Excuse me, I have a head'.


'I look perfectly fabulous in a hat', said the Queen.


And before I knew it, hats were flying!


Just when I thought things couldn't get any worse......


the little dress form girls decided they wanted to go to the party too!


I'm going to have to go now, and try to regain control over the situation here.


Oh......



Visit Carol's blog to see more beautiful (and hopefully well-behaved) dress forms.


Have fun at the party everyone!

Violet Ann is exquisite in her lace dress and oh, those pink hats are to die for and the little dress form girls...Well....I think I might just tell them they are to young to drink the champagne!! They could get a little wild! I am honored that you joined the dress form ball, thank you sooo much!

Hi Debi, You've made my day Sweetie! Your post is by far the most original, unique, sweet and totally incredible post that I've ever had the pleasure to read! Bravo Debi!
Violet Ann's dress is absolutely charming! All the hats on the Queen are beautiful, it's no wonder that Violet Ann wanted to wear one.
Then your small dress forms are adorable! Thank you for making my day a wonderful one! I hope that you also have a lovely and creative day!
