Simple Wardrobes and storage Part Two
While working on sorting out all my doll clothes (almost finished) I felt that hanging suits like this was just not working for me
So I decided on some experimentation.
I found a female body form (Mattel) and traced around it on 3mm foam-core board. You could use cardboard. I used a craft knife to cut the shape.
It only needs to be a vague shape nothing fancy and you can trim if needed.
Next I glued hangers to the top. I'm sure you could make hooks easy enough or use picture/ curtain hooks.
But these hangers work fine and are very inexpensive. I found mine on E Bay
Works well for trouser suits, skirt suits, and strapless tops/dresses.
(not sure why the colours do not match in the photo but they do in real life?)
I wanted to show all my different wardrobe ideas but I need to photograph them outdoors (more space. But as always the weather will not co-operate with storms every day this last week. *sigh*
And as a note to myself ALWAYS KEEP SUIT PIECES TOGETHER) No I didn't I had all the skirts in one baggy tops in another jackets in another etc. Now I'm spending ages trying to match things up. I think my dressed dolls must have run off with a lot of pieces so I will have to wait for the annual doll census (when all doll get redressed, photographed and name checked. Yes, all 600+ dolls have names and their own photo file.) But that's a whole other story.
