Ode to the dress form

There's just something about the dress form that I can't seem to get enough of. If you have told me 7 years ago that I would have a collection of over 10 I never would have believed you. Before I even opened Dear Golden I loved them and purchased my first one just to have in my house. Today a new vintage dress form arrived and it inspired me to compile all the photos I have taken of these beauties and share them with you. I'm actually running out of space in the shop to keep them all so I think I am done collecting them for a little bit...we'll see about that! If you're looking for one you have to be pretty diligent; I found mine at antique stores, estate sales, Craigslist & eBay.

I've always been mildly obsessed with them too. There's something interesting about their headless frames. You would think something like that would be creepy (and I'm sure there's people out there who find them horrifying) but I love them.

As someone who put herself through college by reworking gowns for sorority formals, I have always wanted to replace the dress form I had to give up when I moved to my first apartment.

That is a crazy amount of dress forms! I've always loved them too. One of my daughter's friends won't come over to our house because they scare her. I think they're a piece of art!
