I have been on the hunt for a dress form for a very long time. I didn't want to spend a fortune on it because I was just wanting it for my office and then to occasionally use at shows. When I saw it I figured it would be at least $75 or more. It had no price tag on it so they called the vendor who had that space and she said $30. SOLD!!!!!!!!
It had very dingy red knit fabric on it and so I tore it all off and let me tell ya I had to shower after it was so dirty. I ripped up manila drawing paper into long strips and to give it some texture and then modge podged it on there. I let it dry over night and then took a distressing ink pad to it, to give it some age and another coat of modge podge. It didn't come with a stand so I created my own. I used an old white spindle and a table top for the base.
