Vintage Dress Form

This week's midweek vintage inspiration is my dress form.

 I have been trying to decide on the best working display for millinery. While I overthink the options, I have been using my dress form.

I believe this belonged to my great grandmother.  It is hard to keep clean and certainly aging, but I sure love this piece.

 The details inside this dress form make it adjustable.

Vintage pieces make my imagination soar.  I think of what life was like in the era of the piece.  In the case of this dress form, I imagine the dresses made with it, and the events those dresses were worn.

Happy Wednesday!
