Another Dress Form in the Series

I finished another of the dress form series I’ve been working on over the past few months.  The bottom of the skirt is made from a fan turned upside down.  I then backed it with lace and beaded trim.  I used images of vintage jewelry, paper flowers and metal flowers to decorate the bottom of the skirt.  The sleeves are images of jewelry to which I added Glossy Accents to create dimension.  The overall size of the piece is 3” x 7 ½”.
