Tilda Harvest Mannequins

The curves of a woman's body ...

Inspiring artists, poets, architects ... even engineers and all kinds of scientists, the curves of a woman's body shape a temptation of the mind that leads to incredible creations. So many different angles offered by one signature curve. Thirsty hands walk the path of the curve, admiring its perfection. Lost in the city dust eyes heal the sight by resting on the dynamic change of this feminine  feature - a sinusoid curve of pleasure. 

Behind the mathematical formulas and proportions, in all its different dimensions, it startles me how Tone Finnanger came up with the design of these bustiers. And they are authentically delicate in her signature fabric designs. 

I chose to make them in fabric from her collection Tilda Harvest. This purple with teal just makes my feelings stronger.

The teal makes me feel the cool water splash of the ocean waves. It is so fresh in these hot summer days. The beautiful mannequins could carry all my summer jewellery. Their size is perfect for the long length necklaces and the feminine curve just perfectly holds the bracelets. How exciting! 

I have attached a big matching button on the back of each mannequins. It looks nice on the wings and also locks the chain from the necklaces, especially important feature for the ones with heavy crystals.

The stand is really easy to make. I collected scrap wooden pieces from the nearest construction site. Than my best buddy cut it in squares and drilled a whole for the craft stick. I finished it with bow, tied from a matching in colour crochet ribbon.

The last addition is the bead for the head. At first, I thought to place a wooden bead - all natural and nice looking. Then I found these cotton wrapped beads in Michaels. Or should I be specific and say, that my husband found them :). He does have an eye for the beautiful things - and may this not sound too perky :)))

Even bare-naked, the bustiers are perfect addition to my bedroom and/or sewing room. I could throw ribbons at them, bias binding tape, pierce them with needles and pins and they will still look proud and beautiful. 

I had a great time decorating my table with these new friends of mine. They get along well with the gifts from my dear friends Lisa and Eva, who obviously sensed my weakness for teal :)

Hope you make your own mannequins! It is really rewarding!
