RAEvN’s Nest Dress Form


I want a dress form to display my jewelry for photo shoots. I love the vintage muslin dressmaker forms with the manufacturers name stenciled on them. I really don’t need another dressform, I already have three.

This is one of the dressforms that I have. After tightening up all of the sections it does look better. Of course it is now too small to use for making clothes for myself. I find that the separate sections are too distracting.


The dress form does look better with the knit shell pulled up and pinned on but I really have my heart set on a muslin one.


So I decided to try and make my own. This will be a removable canvas cover.


I am not very good at taking step by step pictures. If I’m creating I don’t usually feel like recording. Here it is almost done. What do you think?


I made a stencil with my own name for it.


I still need a metal collar to complete the look.


One of my necklaces displayed! More to come…
