#BarbieDoll #DressForm DIY for Your #Dolling Diorama @ ChellyWood.com

Isn’t this a cute little dress form? I bought it on eBay (see link for seller) for a very reasonable price, but I didn’t really like the color. Its original color was black with a gold stand. As I wanted a red-white-and-turquoise theme for my sewing room, I decided a can of spray paint was all it would take to turn this “Barbie™ dress form” into the exact dress form I had imagined.

Of course, hindsight, they say, is 20/20; now that I’ve painted it red, I’m suddenly realizing it gets camouflaged against the brick background I had planned for my “dolling” sewing room diorama. The lesson is simple: think hard before you choose your colors!

If you’re wondering why I make patterns and tutorials without charging a fee, please visit the “Chelly’s Books” page, and that should explain my general motivations. Overall, I love to sew, design doll clothes, and embroider, and I think it’s important to share my talents with the world, so others can learn to do what I do.
