Meet Johanna a vintage mannequin I purchased from The Camp Hill antique and collectibles Centre. I have been looking for awhile for one to display a vintage 1930’ s hemp French workers chemise that I am going to embellish for a Margaret Olley inspired piece. She is wearing this with a length of vintage embroidered braid. Hopefully standing beautifully around looking lovely will inform further the details I want to add. There will be line drawings in hand stitch, there will be lace , there will be mother of pearl and old glass buttons, there will be embroidery, there may be fabric, there may be other pieces of old linens.
