You will remember, last Sunday I was gifted with this lovely dressmaker's mannequin...
Well, she has a name now - may I introduce you to Miranda! Pattie advised me that this was crucial to the way our relationship would develop - and since Max found her, he was asked to pick her name. Miranda means "admirable" and I think she is quite happy with it.
She has been going through some slight modifactions, so that she will feel more at home with us. I treated her to a paint job; giving her wooden parts a light green colour with a slightly shabby finish.
Then I sewed a new "dress" for her, out of an old sack I found at the flea market years ago, to give her some shabby chic.
The best part of this - the other side of the sack is covered in faded old printing!!
From a Canadian company, Golden Link, this sack was used for some kind of hard wheat product and was obviously shipped to Rotterdam. I think this gives her that something extra! Miranda seems to like it.
Now my Modelling Assistant is ready to go to work...
