A new dressform!
So life gets busy as usual and turns out its nearly December and I have yet to post more than twice on here. So much for the organization part of this shindig.
In any case, I have a new dress form. I’m lucky enough to have a friend who works at Joann’s Fabrics and she kindly snagged one of the doorbuster dress forms for me. It’s the Dritz Simple Fit and I haven’t really tested it out yet, but so far it looks promising. (We’ll ignore the fact that she got the wrong size and we had to take it back to exchange it. Turns out dress forms come in sizes… she didn’t know that! )
I’m currently working on a dress for my younger sister, as a Christmas present. It’s a 1863 reproduction pattern for a young lady/girl and I was totally cheap and tore apart an old prom dress for this project. I’ll post pictures later when I’ve got the time, but so far it’s coming along great and I really enjoy sewing this era.
