I finally did it, I got a dress form for myself. Tired of pinning clothes onto myself, when I saw the major sale for dress forms – I splurged!
I went with a starter version, the Dritz Sew You Dress form. It was the right price, and had free shipping. So far it has been fantastic, I was easily able to adjust the form to my own measurements, and have already sewn 3 outfits for myself. The best part is being able to drape whatever I am working on directly to the form in the middle of the creation process, which really helps give me a better sewing eye. In the past, I would wear tank tops whenever I was sewing for myself, as I found I was constantly stripping down in the middle of my projects. All with a major fear that someone would ring the doorbell right at that moment…as I was pinning something onto myself. I must have looked crazy, sure felt it. Lol. But now that I have a new sewing BFF, I am pretty sure she needs a name.
What do you think I should name my new dress form?
