I needed to come up with a way to display my scarves and neckwarmers, so I made a dressform from chickenwire and papier mache and I'm really excited about it!
That's a really blurry picture, but it's my boyfriend holding the form when it was just chickenwire. Actually, I think it's still missing a shoulder.
And that's the front after a few layers of papier mache. The chest ended up getting really flattened, but I did something about that later.
And that's from the side, taken at the same time as the last one.
And that's what I did about the flattened chest. It's an old bra that didn't fit me well anymore, stuffed with poly-fil. The bra was papier mache'd over.
And that's the finished dressform, after adding a layer of brownish paper towel stuff, and then putting a shirt on it.
I'm really happy with the way it turned out. Sorry for the bad pictures, they were taken with my camera phone.
So what do you guys think?
