Fashion Meets Decor

Tulle is a most wondrous fabric!
A skirt of tulle
~ fabulous! ~
I have four tulle-skirted gowns ... flea market treasures
Two fun occassions involved the wearing of gowns so far,
but when not being worn or used in photo-shoots,
hiding away in a closet
is such a waste of

For a few months I used them in my studio as a skirt under a high shelf.
Underneath was hidden my printer cart and computer wires.
I re-did this area and am now contemplating where to display the gowns.
Here is a little writing/reading corner in my studio.
I didn't have a chair so brought in one of the metal outdoor ones.
But it needed 'something'...

The pink gown is a size quite small
and has a stain on the bodice
... what if ...

Oh Yes!
Tulle to the rescue!
