Dress Form Success

I finally got myself a dress form! Enough with laying out my garments to photo them for my Etsy or ebay biz! I'm gettin' down right fancy, except for my hunk of junk camera, that will be the next update hopefully.
Now that I have this dress form, which reminds me, what shall I name her? Comments section is open for suggestions! Ok, now that I have this dress form, I can really show off some of the fun garments I have found while thrifting. Here are a few that I will match up with the Mad Men character it would best suit. 
Specimen number 1...
A lovely midnight blue-black knee length dress with a pencil type skirt, blousey top, and 3/4 sleeves. A criss cross neckline. Um, I could totally see a skinny Joan in this with her ri-donk-ulous bosom accentuated in this frock!

Next up is this Tiffany blue and white winter dress coat. Look at the faux mother of pearl buttons and pretty pattern. A Betty Draper wardrobe must! Interestingly enough, the label says 'Sears Fashions', didn't know they had a 'fashion' line.

Check out this mustard colored sack dress. The color is saturated and stunning! It has a little tie belt that cinches in the waist and a high and modest neckline. Yep, this dress is definitely for Peggy.

If you would like to see more photos of these fun frocks, you can visit my Etsy store Vintage Dreams.

Don't forget to leave names for the dress form... :)

Today I am linking up with Apron Thrift Girl's Thrift Share Monday, Her Library Adventures: Flea Market Finds, and Homemaker on a Dime's Blog Hop.


  1. Congrats on scoring the dress form. I think her name should be Margie.

  2. All your finds are lovely, I especially love the blue and white coat dress. I have three dress forms, their names are Melva, Reba and Elizabeth. Can't wait to see what you name yours.

  3. Sally the dress form. Congrats!

  4. Love the dress form. I have been hunting around for one, too. Have a great day.

  5. I love the dress form!! I got one for my daughter and she keeps her jewelry pinned on it!!

  6. I feel so much better! I thought I was the only crazy person who named her dress form! Mine is Jill! I agree with Dana- I think Margie is cute! They help so much with photographing and selling items! I don't know what I'd do without my Jilly!
