Fresh Lemons


I haven’t posted in several days.

It’s not because I haven’t been busy.

I have been creating dress forms for almost a year now.

Thanks to a custom order a few days ago, there is now a beautiful new design available in the Etsy shop.

The customer wanted a yellow and white striped form with clean lines and some vintage lemon graphics.

She wanted to incorporate her shop name.

So….we set out to create a brand new look for the forms.


We did the “flesh” portion with a darker paper bag type paper to crate a little more contrast with the light fabrics.

We used a wonderful tiny print cream fabric as the “base”. The we added two different small print “lemon yellow” prints to create stripes.

We went with the horizontal stripes on the top and the vertical on the bottom.

As we worked, we created patterns that we can use again the next time we do a design like this.


I purchased some wonderful graphics from this terrific Etsy seller. If you are looking for something special, take a look here.


love this little quote that the customer wanted to incorporate into the piece…


a new piece of bling for this special dress form was added.

This is a vintage inspired black and white doorknob (purchased from Hobby Lobby).

I’ve been wanting to incorporate this type of element into the forms and I’m really happy with the way it looks.

This new design can be customized by changing the fabric choices, the art, and the flesh color (lighter or darker).

She is now listed in the Etsy shop.

Creating custom orders for your customers can inspire your own creativity to new levels.

You’ve got to love that.

Thanks for letting us share our newest project.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
