Transform a Dress Form - The Piece By Piece July Challenge

We know that dress forms are all the rage in our crafting community, so we thought they would make the perfect theme for our July Challenge.

Here's what we'd like you to do: Take a dress form, any dress form and alter the heck out of it. We would like you to use lace, trim, fabric or ribbon to make your dress form unique.  You can use it on a project to make it pop, or have it stand alone if that suits you. The challenge details are listed below.

If you are in need of supplies to make your dress form come alive, visit our Etsy Shop, it's full of amazing laces, trims, ribbons and fabrics that will allow you to deck out your dress form just the way you like.
