Suzy V Dressed for Spring

I bought this wicker mannequin at an antique flea market. My mother was horrified that I would actually pay for this and she named her Suzy. The lady at the flea market said she was Venus so now I lovingly call her Suzy V. I dressed Suzy V up for Spring using a vintage hat that belonged to my grandmother, one of the lace collars I recently picked up at an estate sale (the whole bag was $3), family pearls, vintage scarf and tattooed her body with vintage broches that belonged to my aunt. Along side of Suzy V is an old ladder displaying vintage patterns, another of grandmother's hats, and vintage scraves. And of course behind her is a framed mirror so we can sneak a peak of our results. It is so fun to play dress up at any age.

Pattern or design used: My own design

You don't know how funny it would be for him to be contacted about buying it. They were shoved down under a display. I had to literally dig them out. Posted: 2:08 pm on March 27th
