... Introducing Johanna!! (Named after my dear Granny, from whom I inherited my passion for sewing).
I've been on the lookout for a mannequin for such a long time! And finally, last month, I found her... abandoned in a gloomy (and not that clean!) corner of a thrift store, in dire need of a makeover! She's actually a torso, but I love her anyway!
It took me awhile to decide which was the look I wanted to convey, and in the end I opted for old book pages, to conphere her a very neutral look, to be paired with anything I might want her to model. After hours of patient glueing, here she is, already in a Winter mood, sporting one of my newest woolen scarves/necklaces, I managed to make in the latest few days, too!
The second one in two different shades of gray, embellished by two handmade organza flowers, adorned by beads.
