1  Dressform in Completed Projects by groundedpidgeon on: September 12, 2009 08:17:40 PM
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?

2  Product Opinions? Neckwarmers, Scarves, Etc. Kinda Image Heavy in Get Product and Website Opinions by groundedpidgeon on: August 25, 2009 10:42:39 AM
Hi there! I just wanted to know what people think about some of my stuff. Do you like it? Dislike it? Are there things you think should be fixed? Do you think anyone would actually be willing to buy this stuff?

And also, I've been having a problem with pricing. I know that the rule is generally an hourly wage, multiplied by the number of hours spent making it, plus cost of materials. But I'm afraid if I do that, I'll be charging more than people would be willing to pay. What do you think I should charge for any of this stuff?

Pink scarf. Soft and pretty chunky. About 6 ft long. Or 7, if you include the fringe.

Blue, pink, yellow popcorn skinny scarf. About 10 ft long.

Baby pink mesh stitch scarf. About 5 ft long.

Multi-colored hat and neckwarmer set.

Black ribbed hat with dangling pom-pom.

Rose neckwarmer.

Rainbow hat with pom-pom.

I'd appreciate any comments you have. Thanks.
