There will be over 150 vendors selling Canadian Hand Made products.  You can find me at booth 64.

Mannequin Redo Times 2

Earlier this year I purchased a pair of wire frame mannequins for my booth.  They started out pink but I wasn’t fond of that and sprayed them black.

They were too airy though and the jewellery did not show well against them.  See what I mean?

The picture is a little fuzzy but you get the idea right?

I decided to “make” dresses for the girls as I call them.  One kept her curvy form and the other I gave a fuller dress.  The curvy one has a strapless dress while the second is sleeveless with a simple scoop neckline.  Funny how the second one looks so much taller.  I think I need to take the waists in a bit though.
