Don’t worry mom and dad, there are no new pets in this house. Jimbo and Kink would not allow it (and quite frankly they are enough to handle). I have been looking for a dress form for a bit. Either everything was too expensive or I just didn’t see where I could put it. Well, while doing the big clean, I was able to get rid of some stuff that was just taking up way too much space. Then this week I thought I would check craigslist, just for the heck of it. And I found one! And it was CHEAP! Like almost $200 cheaper than new ones and vintage ones.
And it adjusts to my size (ok I may have to add some padding to the middle bits, but I’m working hard on getting that off)! 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 here’s the deal, post a name that you think fits my new roommate, and I’ll put you into a drawing for the following:
2 vintage patterns, buttons and trim (each of the trims are about 4 yards or so each!) and there may be some other goodies too. Who knows! I’ll pick a winner on the 15th of this month!
