Mannequin Inspiration

Did you know that if you take the ugly sheath off these dressmaker forms, they have wonderfully rustic "skin"?!
She only put up a fuss when I couldn't get the fabric away from her "birthmarks"
Despite a little remaining fuzz in her armpits, Miss Sally Stitch has been stripped of all her frippery. Geesshh, I don't know why husbands can't see how inspiring these old mannequins are!

  2. Polly, Honey, I think you've lost it! LOL! Actually, I have to agree that Sally actually is more interesting "bare-skinned".

  8. She's absolutely wonderful! I would have never guessed it either. These men just don't get a lot of things do they. LOL! Oh well at least we women understand each other.
