I’m Audrey and new to Sew Retro. I’ve been sewing almost two years now and chronicle my sewing, upholstery and other crafty and creative exploits on my blog, boongoggle.
I have a question if you don’t mind. I have been reading a lot of sewing blogs lately where the dress forms are referred to by name, such as Delores, Dotty, etc. This got me to thinking. Is this traditional? Do the people who name their dress forms also name their sewing machines, Kitchen Aid mixers, cars, bicycles, etc? I see there is a post today about Betty, a new (vintage) and beautiful sewing machine.
Does your dress form have a name? What is it and what is the story behind it? I’d love to know. Thank you!
