Dotty madness and size envy.......

It's fabulous when one of my customers asks for something a little bit different, something new and refreshing to get my teeth (or sewing machine) in to. So when TG asked for a new version of Dotty I was so pleased. The Cath Kidston red paisley works so well with the creamy white linen.




I've shown her on an ebony stand for a classic vintage mannequin look.
Then I have other wonderful people asking if I can make a mannequin for them in a smaller size....well I'm very pleased to say that I can, at last, offer three size options....a standard 10/12, a smaller size 8/10 and a larger 12/14. The black seamless mannequin below is a size 8/10...she is a very petite mannequin and I am thinking of sending a large bar of chocolate to anyone ordering her!

Dotty looks divine! Slender mannequins..... I dont think I could because I would feel Sooooo guilty sat in bed reading with a (rare) packet of Burts black pepper crisps.... the petite mannequin would be standing at the end of the room... watching.... guilt would be too much to cope with!
Hang in there, Christmas will be here before you know it and all your orders will be complete... and we can drink tea together, in peace! Now theres a thought!

How lovely - you have a blog!!!! Do you know, I've seen your mannequins over the past couple of years (at least!), and really envied/lusted after them, and have popped in to drink in your website a number of times (I have a thing about mannequins, like so many people, and have always wanted to graduate to covering mine, but yours are to die for). I didn't realize that you had a blog, so I was so thrilled to see your name on my comments. It was a very deja vue moment - bit like a celebrity popping in! LOL.
Thanks so much for your lovely comment on my sewing post. I really do struggle, and people like you have inspired me to get sewing over the past couple of years.
I've climbed onto your followers, which I'm sure will become a very long list of eager people. Caroline x

Hi Lucy, I am very proud to own one of your gorgeous mannequins, and 'Madeleine' as you know, is a much-loved member of the family!! You create such beautiful-looking mannequinsso you're bound to be busy at this time of year - what a super present to receive (or treat yourself to!) Look forward to seeing the French fabric transformed in due course (when you aren't so busy!) Clare @ Vintage Home Blog
