Padding my Dressform and Some Small Misfortunes
I like using a dress form mostly for design purposes. The linen robe is a 1961 Vogue pattern (that I still have to review on PR) The dress form helped me place the lace. But we've been having contractors in and out of our condo in recent weeks gathering info to make bids to redo our master bath. I decided that my dress form needed to be more modest when she was "undressed." I sewed a cotton knit tube then pinned it tightly into place over the padded form, re-pinned, restitched and pulled it into place. As I said, I'm not looking to recreate my undressed body (that's a different post for the future when I write about MY TWIN dress form in Baltimore.) I have narrower shoulders and spinal curve that gives me some pretty severe asymmetry. But for modeling a woven garment this one works just fine.
