in Dress Forms

I have been looking for a dress form for awhile now.  The big problem, my budget.  Then this week I thought I would check craigslist, just for the heck of it.  And I found one!

And it adjusts to my size (ok I may have to add some padding to the middle bits)!  It’s hard pink plastic, that needs a bit of a wash with some white vinegar as it still has that “farm fresh” smell.  But other than that, it’s perfect!  Now all she needs is a name.  So I’m hoping to enlist some help from other WeSewRetro’ers.  Check out my blog for more details.

Lucky you! How about Gertie?

This kind of form is a great candidate for a jersey slipcover. It’d give you something to pin into, keep unfinished pieces from sliding off, and help hold any padding in place, not to mention bridge the (rather large) gaps.

Thanks for all the name ideas! You should really post them over on my blog…hint hint…

Jessamyn – I’m totally going to make a slipcover for her! But right now we’re just hanging out together, watching movies, and eating popcorn… well I’m the one eating the popcorn
