No, I’m not expecting twins (although maybe it would be better to pop two out in one go and be done with it?!), my lovely family all got together to get me a dress form for Christmas and my birthday.
I ordered it on Wednesday from here (by far the cheapest I could find, although it seems to have gone up by £10 since Wednesday!), and it arrived on Thursday – blimmin’ quick if you ask me.
All in the name of Peggy’s Pickles, Dave kindly recorded the construction of my new rather poshly named Lady Valet (manufacturer’s name, not mine I would like to point out).
Now, as the last photo shows, we were getting on swimmingly post-construction. How quick these things can change…
Dave took it upstairs to the sewing room, but left it peeking round the door. I forgot all about it being there and then had the fright of my life when I got to the top of the stairs to find it looming there in the dark. I had to close the door, and then check it hadn’t been opened in the morning. Scary stuff people, scary stuff.
Therefore, I am definitely of the Tilly school of thought – these things should never be named. And it is definitely an IT, not a She.
Despite the slight sense of unease I have around it in the dark, I can’t wait to size it properly and use it when making my next creation!
