A new form at our house

Kim is a designer at heart. She comes up with all kinds of cool little knitted things, or sewn things. (I have to follow a pattern, I can't dream things up on my own) So when she asked for a dress form, I thought it would be great to have one around. I priced them and said, "not yet". So last week I got an email about dress forms on sale at Joann.com. I read the reviews on both that were offered, and placed an order for this gal. She can be used for both Kim and myself. It's weird how we can have similar measurements but have totally different body types.






And a couple of finished objects. A hat for a friend.......


And some interesting "lace" doilies. These have not been washed or dressed out(blocked). These are about the right size to place your drink on.


This one is huge!! It's probably 12 inches in diameter pre-dressing. I think it is so cool how I learned to do these. All of them are made from cotton of the Peaches and Cream variety on size 3 needles.

Sounds like you have seamstress on your hands! Would she like to have some really nice fabric? Take a look at my blog archives for the fabric I got from my boss. I have given some to Chrispy and have promised some to Kathy at Vast Amount of Spare Time, but there is still much more here than I would use. Maybe Kim would like to come "shop" for enough for a dress or maybe a skirt or slacks and a jacket?

Your dress form reminds me of a couple years ago when my twins were 5 I got a dress fom and they wanted to know what it was. I said, "Robo-mommy. She's going to say the things I say over and over again tht you guys ignore like 'Don't run in the house, don't run in the house'" Their eyes got pretty big! Enjoy the form, they're really useful.
