I had the most amazing luck the other day! I heard of someone who was getting rid of some old dressmakers forms and I thought that having another form – particularly a cheap, old one – would be fantastic to use for period dressmaking. I could perhaps alter it or pad it for using for a particular era.
I arrived to inspect my new acquisition, only to discover that it was an old one! A lovely old one! And one that I couldn’t possibly alter.
It has a label on it saying, “Your Double Co.” with a Sydney postoffice box address. I have yet to figure out what era it is from though.
The best part about it was that it was only $20! I am not sure how I will use it yet, but it is beautiful to just gaze upon in my living room.
I probably won’t get to post again before Christmas, so I will take this opportunity of wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a safe and happy New Year!
