Decorating With ~ Mannequins

I was recently in Pier 1 and noticed that they had some decorative mannequins on display.  This made me realize that I have been seeing them in a lot of stores and on a lot of blogs lately. 

I thought I’d see just how many places we could find these popular forms.  Prices seem to vary although Amazon seemed to offer the lowest price on their selection.

What an interesting accent piece if you are putting together a sewing room for yourself or as a gift for someone who sews.  For fashion conscious teens {or adults} they serve double duty as an accessory and something to hold your accessories.

Cute, Cute. I wish I had room in my sewing room for one of them. Wouldn't that be fun!

I have dress form heaven in my guest room! Lots of different mannequins and dress forms up there!


The Decorative Dreamer said...

Yes, I have seen them quite a bit too! I love the really large metal floor model ones that I keep seeing in TJ Max and Marshalls!

Hi Kathy,
I have been looking for a lifesize mannequin for my booth but can't find one I can afford.
The little ones are so sweet and they look good on tabletops.
I'll keep looking, I know I'll find one.


Marsha @ Tattered Chick said...

Tee hee, don't forget mine! I LOVE mannequins . . . . I wish I had room for a full size one!!!


Unknown said...

Yep. I sure love them. I wish I had just ooonnne more. A vintage fabric covered one. Probably never happen though. Unless it's just one of those amazing finds. Thanks so much for stopping by my studio.

I finally found my green wicker mannequin/dress form and now I really don't know where to put her, what to put on her, and some folks think I need to name her!!!!

Hi Kathy,
These are all really cute! I always liked the large ones, but these small ones could be working into a room easier.
Also thanks for your kind words about my daughter Heather, keeping our fingers crossed.
Hugs, Cathy

My Mom was a dress designer so I grew up with a dress form in the house. I find something very friendly about them. Fun post. Hope you'll stop by again at Atticmag. Jane F.

I agree that it is a perfect accessory piece and functional jewelry holder too! Good observation!!

Lisa @ Fern Creek Cottage said...

A friend of mine has a large beautiful master bath. She has a manniquen form in there that she keeps her robe on. It is so cute!

Hi there,
Thanks for visiting my blog, I entered you in my giveaway.
I only have 2 mannequins and they are the large antique ones.
These are all really cute!
Visit again soon,

I just saw several of them on sale at Ross. They ran around $39. I don't sew, but if I did I think it would look adorable in my sewing room.

Denise said...

I actually just bought a little larger one from TJ Maxx so I can show off my knitted cowls and scarves I'm knitting. I also have a small one for jewelry that my friend gave me last year, I love it :)

The French Bear said...

Love those dress forms. Have you ever seen the ones Monica makes over at the White Bench? She makes the most incredible ones, very girly and so romantic! I love all of them, I have a wrought iron one but would love a larger one!!!

Dear Kathy, I wanted to tell you how sweet it was of you to leave a comment about my craft room. I have so enjoyed looking through your professional work shared here on your blog. What a wonderful occupation you have, and what an eye for composition and elegance. It was such a fun event to participate in, and I am glad to know of you through the experience! Elizabeth

You're right! I really like the Ballard one.

We found some "full size" at the thrift store from a ladies store that went out of business. They have been fun to dress for holidays and events. Last week I brought home one the size for a dollhouse. Now it sits on my desk waiting for inspiration to strike.

Cute post--interesting, too!
I found a life-sized mannequin for my younger daughter at a yard sale (!), she actually puts the outfits on it the night before she wants to wear something for the next day!1 She's my planner!
Hers looks similar to the Kohl's one.
Hugs, sweetie!
