Once I saw this full-size idea circulate around my independent garden center group, I knew I had to do it – in miniature! In the full-size world, they use dressmakers or mannequins for the form and build the dress right on it with spectacular results. I’ve been on the lookout for a miniature dressmaker – that didn’t cost an arm and a leg (Ha! That’s punny!) because I wanted to glue the miniature boughs right on it. No such luck, so I made my own.
The how-to video, (I’m just polishing it up now,) will be posted along with all our other new and innovative ideas in miniature up on our Miniature Garden Society website. We’re having fun digging deeper into the hobby, creating fun, new projects for the miniature garden, exploring new techniques that can help us achieve the realism that we’re looking for, and connecting with like-minded people all over the world. So far, we have people from all over the United States, Canada, England, India and Italy.
Give us a like, comment, share to help spread the joy of gardening in miniature to someone who may need it! Now more than ever, hobbies help us to stay grounded and centered in this busy, busy world.
