Today I picked up my new dressform! Elaine hooked me up with this guy on Chabanel who was selling it for $35...what a steal! The fabric was really stained and torn in a few spots, but it's a Wolf, has collapsible shoulders, and the height is adjustable by an old-school metal pedal. So nice!
I took it apart and made a white "t-shirt", slipped it on, and put all the parts back together. Now it's as good as new.
In the process, I staple-gunned right through my pointer finger. It actually didn't hurt that much....surprising. If you're wondering what the band-aid on my thumb is for...I sewed through that finger yesterday. Guess I can never be a hand model.
