Everyone has skeletons in their closet (pantry if your English, cupboard under the stairs if your Harry Potter)
Ex boyfriends, Friends, the odd dead body........
and looooonnnnnnggggg neglected mannequins......
This little love was a present from my lovely parents when I first became interested in dressmaking (Its hard to believe how much those guys supported and nurtured my dreams! I took it for granted so much growing up, but if your reading cheers guys!)
I believe it was secretly brought from our local auction room!
And she is hard core, I literally have no idea how old she is but trust me she is no where as new as the adjustable mannequins I've ever seen, those things are safe! No seriously, adjusting Matilda is RISKY! I nearly lost a finger once!
Her covers coming off a bit and she's missing a couple of screws, but after residing in our loft for the past two years I thought she deserved an outing and a bit of a spruce for yesterdays photo-shoot!
Ahh much better! and perfect for taking hundreds of pictures of cowls and scarves!
What's hidden in your closet?
