Two new vintage gal's and a row of colourful Dames.

I've been busy with a vintage Stockman mannequin and some gorgeous rich, sumptuous, chenille fabric.  I've really enjoyed my latest recovering projects.  Do you remember my Buste Girard palest green mannequin? I have a few other mannequins which I want to recover but its important to use the right fabric for the right mannequin.  After all, they will be paired with each other for some time so I have to "live" with both the mannequin and the fabric for a while to see whether they really go together.  I feel that the fabric should enhance the mannequin shape and reflect her age.  I have been tempted to use a very modern vibrant fabric but I'm just not brave enough.  Perhaps I should.  I'd love to know what you think about that...a very modern fabric on a vintage mannequin...yes or no?

This mannequin has a fabulous adjusting mechanism.
and I've updated the photos on these gorgeous velvet seamless mannequins too.
I think these velvet covers would be perfect for the male mannequins too.  Better get back to work in my nearly completed refurbished workroom.  Who am I kidding...it will never be completely finished but heres  my new thread holder.
 
I've even got room for my vintage threads too. Beautiful!

Love that spool rack. Where did you get it from? Modern fabric on vintage mannequins! Hmm. Depends what you mean by modern. Some designs are reminiscent of say the 60s or the 50s, so the only thing modern about them is that they probably s-t-r-e-t-c-h.....

Love the spool holder. I've managed to pick up a small BAKELITE one.
