Having a dress form has been my fondest dream. Although I don't sew, I wanted one for the ability to display necklaces on a full sized scale. Meet Lucy, my new assistant!
I was at the right place at the right time - you know - one of those deals you cannot believe...
It happens that I was on our local CraigsList looking for a local art event - and I am never on CraigsList - ever!
An ad for dress form torsos appeared and I could not believe my eyes. It seems that a T-shirt shop was downsizing and they had 50 of three different styles of torsos for about 1/8 of the price of a new one.
When I called, I was only the second inquiry and when I explained how I would use it, the seller searched through all 50 to find the one with the best fabric and wood topper. My husband and I skeedaddled over to pick it up and Lucy and I have been inseparable ever since!
Not only does the torso give a great presentation of necklaces but I have been trying out using it for earring scale too.
Tell me whether the earrings hanging on the neckline is useful for presenting the size of the earring - I am so challenged with sizing up earrings for customers. What do you think? Honest opinions! Leave a comment!
