Yet another mannequin

A mannequin project. I bought her in terrible condition, the fabric was mouldy and was literally falling apart. I stripped the fabric and wadding, mended holes and the broken neckpart, then cleaned the surface and let her dry. You can also have a peak inside the body.
I covered her in logos from the frontpages of old Le journal des Brodeuses (french broidery magazine) that I managed to hunt down a large pile of.
I´m very pleased with the outcome. I´ve had plenty offers from people who want to buy her, but she is not for sale.
I do take on commissions and prepare similar mannequins upon request.
