Laura Ashley 'Tatton' Vintage Style Mannequin

At Christmas my local Laura Ashley was covered in this wonderful fabric. It looked so striking that I knew that it would make a lovely mannequin, so I bought a few metres and got to work. She turned out exactly as I had imagined she would!

The pink fabric in the picture is cotton, but it also comes in a beautiful woven jacquard available in cerise, duck egg and charcoal.

I was lucky enough to be able to work with the charcoal woven jacquard for a lady who ordered a mannequin in this fabric, finished with a traditional tailored back.
