An uncooperative clothes horse

No....stop it.....keep still.....stop jigging around......



.....don't stand like a robot.....relax and look natural....



.....nooooo...not that natural......stand up nice and straight.....



......oh, I give up!

You get the idea right? I made the girl a new dress.

Note to self: next time just use a coathanger!

p.s. and Angela, if you're reading this you may have noticed I used a leftover bit of your fabric for the yoke - thank you!!

Great dress and very "interesting" modelling!!!! It always makes us laugh when I try to get any "natural" photos because our wedding photographer really traumatised Mr Locket by shouting "RELAX" at him which just made him more stilted! So funny!

Very cute Lesley. And your clothes horse is ever so much more interesting than a coathanger!

Don't you just love mobile clothes horses! The dress is very cute, I like the use of fabrics :-)
Not sure how but I missed your last post but the bag is great.

Very pretty and swishy. You wouldn't have got the swish with a non action model :)

Cute dress...the question is did you pay that model perhaps that is where you went wrong.
