I have finally got around to making my cardboard lady. I had left her a little long in storage and she had begun to have some discolouration. I should have resealed the box, but I was a lazy Daisy.
I made her to a Misses size 12, and she looks pretty tiny.
She took about three hours to put together and gave me the dry rots towards the end.
Fitting the torso and the bum together was so frustrating, I nearly took a knife to her.
Her first dress is this amazing apple green bridesmaid's dress. I have named the dress Joelene after the Dolly Parton song. It is so bad it is good. The sleeves are fabulous. It would look great on a 'bright young thing!' Now I have Daisy finished, I will try listing some clothes in my Laughing Duck Vintage shop on the weekend.
