Quilled Dress Form

Counterfeit Challenge Extras- fairy, quilled clock, flourished hearts, origami corset, decorative corners and quilled dress form/mannequin.

Handmade & Cricut cut embellishments.


One strip I cut a little wider than the others and I folded it over to make the center pole.

Next I attached one strip around the center and lopped it across the top and attached it to the opposite side of the already attached pole. I added a touch of glue at the top point the outline touches the poll.



I cut two strip in half and quilled one end. The other end I attached under the neck at the pole to form the arm/shoulder and the top of the dress form.


I cut two strip in half and quilled one end. The other end I attached under the neck at the pole to form the arm/shoulder and the top of the dress form.



I cut three strips in half. I quilled and re-quilled these six strips in sets of two. I requilled which means I rerolled the quill because I needed a tighter/smaller quill. I did this with my hand. The center quill was a little larger than the other two. I glued the bottoms together. I did this for both sides of course alternating the way the curled faced.

I glued the bottom of the three curled strips onto the bottom of the dress form. I pinched the waiste together and bound the waiste for the moment, so it would grow accustom to this shape.


I cut another strip in half. I hold each half and quilled the ends making the curl go in the same direction . Next I attached each to the bottom of the pole to create the feet of the dress form.

Cutting another stip in half I quilled nearly the entire piece. I requilled making a tighter roll. This I attached just under the neck of the dress form just above the piece that was attached as the arm/shoulder.

I looped a tiny sliver of a strip of paper and pinched it lightly to make an oval. I attached this at the top creating a neck.




At the waiste I unbounded the form and wrapped it in lace. It could be left bound for an alternative look. Last I quilled both ends of a long yellow strip of paper. When I gave it a little pull as I unwound it so it would come slight unbound.
