This is my dress form. It's not vintage or custom made but I love it. My Brother bought it for me for Christmas a couple years ago.

I didn't have much on it but a few necklaces and belts untill last year when my sweet Brother bought me something extra special to put on it. This vintage Christian Dior pink robe!

Dior is my favorite brand! I will have to share photos of my Dior makeup collection sometime!

While I keep the Dior robe on my form most of the time I wanted to show you this other vintage robe I recently put on my dress form. I found this beauty at a flea market a couple weeks ago. I just love the big pink buttons!

As far as a name goes I guess what pops into my head is Nellie in her nightie. Seems to fit!

I found this cute little wicker form a few weeks ago. Love it! I think I will spray paint it though!

On it is Mom's (Twyla) beautiful fifties bed jacket. I was so jealous when she came home with it a couple weeks ago! It was also a sweet gift from my Brother!

I have yet to come up with a name for it so if you have any ideas I am open to suggestions!

Now go and visit Shabby Scraps and check out the other blogs!

Thanks for visiting. Lindsey and Twyla

I love the reddish-pink fabric she is covered in! I used to have a wicker form too.

I love the name Nellie.

Question: how did you ever get so lucky to have a BROTHER to buy you a dress form? Seriously. If I wasn't already married...

These are great! Love the jacquard and the wicker. Lovely robes. The bedjacket reminds me of Scarlett's blue crystal pleated nightgown worn underneath her blue robe when Bonnie takes her fall in gwtw. That stuff is so hard to find at fabric stores!

Carla said...

Looks like you could have a dress form pajama party. Lovely eveningwear and such a thoughtful brother!

Pamela Jane said...

What a brother! And what a delicious deep rose fabric that is -- love it!

What a beautiful dressform! I love the robes you display on it, too. From the simple to the sublime!! I've got a wicker 1/2 dressform too, forgot to picture mine. I painted it white & love it. I'll have to picture it for you!

What a fantastic robe! OH YES, the Dior is pretty nice as well! LOL. I have an old wire dress form that I bought at a garage sale about 12 years ago. One of my favorite pieces. She holds willow branches, kind of like a sculpture.
