Cartography Mannequin

The making of a 'world map mannequin' for display for the Further Education Open Day at Bishop Burton College 2013.

 Pleated neckline and epaulettes
Blue hydrangea petals are added to the bodice 

 Pink peonies and vibrant gerberas are inserted into water filled testubes broken up by curly talansia

Craspedia and ornamental stachys leaves are placed on the shoulders 

 I have a small obsession with peonies!

 Yellow chrysanthemum heads are dotted willy nilly throughout the mannequin

 Hey presto a kind of satnav in a frock!!
