The Unveiling

I don't know how long I have owned this dress form. My friend Karen, from My Desert Cottage pointed out (in the nicest way possible),  that it's kind of hideous. :)

At first we were going to cover it with simple beige linen and maybe add to it some text or stamping. Then we decided to see what was underneath. Actually, we didn't know how we were going to cover it... what a bear!

The previous owner did go through great lengths to cover it with seam tape, cotton and hideous pink fabric with rickrack. 

She is so petite and cute underneath-the owner might not have been so tiny-I mean, look at that waist! It's so 50's.

 Sometimes, the best things are left alone and we certainly saved ourselves a lot of time. We sat around asking ourselves, "Now what do we work on?" We got the EASY button!!! How often does that happen? Thanks, my dear Karen.
