14 Days Until The Dress Form Ball!

The Dress Form Linky Party is just 14 days away

February 7-14.....Sweet! And there is going to be a dress form giveaway

Your hostess is getting ready and has finally decided what she is wearing to the ball.  

One of you (I can't remember who) called it a dress form ball, I do remember her dress forms name is Belle.  
Hum, I wonder who is going to be the "Belle" of the ball?

ALL dress forms welcome!
12 feet or 12 inches tall
Paper, metal, wood
Old or New
Dressed or ala natural
Homemade or store bought
Old post or New Post
As many dress form Posts as you like

We Love them all!!!!

If you have never linked, Here is a great post on how to link to a Linky party by "Beneath My Heart"

If you can't figure out how to link up, email me when your post is up and
  I will link it for you!
My email button is in the top left corner.  All I will need is your blog address and I will do the rest, No one is getting left out of this party!

And to sweeten the pot Barr Display has generously offered to give a dress form to one lucky lady that leaves a comment at the dress form ball!!

This is two parts, the form and the base.
  The form can be used alone and has a swivel hanger.
The form is $8.98 
The base is $12.00
The form and base are #8020 and come in black and white. Put #8020 into search
The shipping is actual cost and should be around $7-$8

Have you figured out yet what you're wearing to the ball??

Happy Creating!

Brill idea for a party, looking forward to seeing the links! Scarlett x

Kim @ Cheap Chic Home said...

Okay, my dear Carol, may I dress up a caged Santos if I don't have a dress form, or would that be a big fat faux pas?

Kasia said...

Oh Lordie! Your dress form is just amazing! I adore the lace, bling and colours! Can't wait to see what everyone else makes! :)


Shannon @Cozy Home Scenes said...

Sounds like you chose a good theme for your party. I didn't know dress forms were so popular. I have several from my days selling at shops. Guess I better get busy getting one of the girls ready for the ball. My party goers get anxious and like to show up early. Join us at 8pm if you can. Officially starts Tues. and lasts until Thurs. night.
Wish me luck and best of luck to you, too. Hope you have a large number of friends for your first party which I'm sure you will. Hope to see you later........ Shannon

Thanks for letting me/you do the link up for the ball!!! I'm so "challenged" with the computer.

Sounds like fun...I'm in!


Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Looking forward to it Carol. I have a dress form in my booth (for sale but no takers as of yet) Anyway....I dressed her in a pleated newspaper skirt and other fun stuff for Christmas. In January I opened up our little local county newspaper and lo and behold there was a huge photo of her in the paper. Turns out the editor of the newspaper loves to antique and was in our shop one day and saw my dress form and noticed that her skirt was made out of our local newspaper. I didn't even realize I had done that because I get several newspapers. It was so strange to see "Ava's" picture in the paper. I know your party is going to be a huge success. xo

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

LOL....I will definitely bring Ava to the ball. Poor thing....she is so flat chested I will have to find her a padded bra to wear. :)

Holly- Cutie Pie Cottage said...

I actually picked up another little dress form the other day JUST for your party! ♥

PS I don't know why but I always have to click off the pop up blocker when I come here before I can comment.

Carol said...

Carol, your Dress Form Party is going to be so much fun!! Victoria Rose is still trying to decide what to wear. This weekend her sister, Savannah Rose, moved in and she is insisting on wearing her vintage bridal gown. :)
See you at the party.
Take care!

Oh darn...I would love to go to the ball but I'm blogless! Carol...would anyone be willing to post pictures for those of us who have Cinderellas but no coach to attend? Laurie (woniota@rochester.rr.com)

Dawn's Craft Place said...

I am so excited to see all the belle's - I haven't had a spare moment to play with mine...will see.
I have friends that keeping looking at my blank one and asking if I would make them one also.
I have to say when I ordered the shipping was more then the form for me.
If I order again I would call in the order to get a quote for shipping.

Kathryn Ross said...

Oh! Milady! I am visiting from Debbie over at Words on Wheels and was attracted by your dress form link-up party! Toooo wonderful! If time allows, I may be able to participate - I keep my vintage form in my dining room/library presiding over all my tea parties. She is Lady Cordelia. I dress her seasonally in one of my many vintage costumes. What to wear to the ball? Difficult . . . so many outfits to choose from. I hope to participate - but, to be sure - I am following you now. Love the vintage rose bouquet post you recently did. And, I've already pinned you!!!

Hope you'll visit me over at The Writer's Reverie - www.thewritersreverie.blogspot.com

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

Hello Carol~ It's always nice stopping by for a visit.
I enjoy your posts and the eye candy you so generously share. I adore all your dress forms and the beautiful transformations created. My dream is to commission Janet @Shabbyfufu for one of her gorgeous dress forms. Here's a link to her latest design.

I hope you can stop by to see the Valentine surprises I've got in store. This week starting with...Pain au Chocolat. I'll put the kettle on for a nice cup of tea.
Sweet wishes,
