This has been the most interesting challenge that I have participated in. It is the Mannequin Challenge at Tag Tuesday. Their guest hostess picked this theme. I have a couple of pics showing different views of my entry. The first thing I did was to use my pattern stamp from B-Line. I thought that would be a perfect start. Next I used a piece of gold heart and cut away most of it so it would fit around the neck. Afterwards I draped a piece of material from an old skirt that I had. I clipped the top of the drap with a decorated paper clip. Next to show the waistline I put a piece of trim around the waist. The trim has an organza ribbon weaving in and out of a strip of pearls.
As an added touch I glued a safety pin to "hold" the pattern on the manneequin.
I felt that the piece was a little out of balance so I used a stamp from Artistic Outpost that had numbers going in different directions as I remembered when I sewed that almost all of my patterns had numbers or markings that meant nothing to me. Finally, I put a little scroll cutout from my Cricuit on the corner bottom to give it a little more weight and balance on that side..
I really enjoy making this mannequin. I definitely will be doing this again even if it is not for a challenge.
