It's Blue But I Love It

My old Posterous blog wouldn't let me export the old entries and comments, so I decided to just start over... here's to another new beginning!

Guess what came in the mail this week... my very own dress form!  Thanks to a nice tip from SHORTcuts and dropping $92 after discounts, this is what I unwrapped:

The dress form can be adjusted to fit petite women with the following measurements:
Bust: 28 to 34 inches
Waist: 22 to 29 inches
Hips: 30 to 38 inches
      Granted, it's blue and the adjustable dials don't work all that well... but I still love it!  The preset measurements were actually already my own, so I didn't even need to adjust it!  It was like pulling a mini-me out of the box!

      This is the side view (hubby was playing Final Fantasy in the background lol):

      I was actually a little surprised at how petite I really am!  I don't sew but I do knit, and it's really useful to have something to try the sweaters on to check the fit as I'm working on them instead of struggling to put half-finished pieces on myself as I'd been doing.  The dress form is pretty true to my size, as you can see from one of the sweaters I made a while ago:

      And when I'm not using it for fitting purposes, I can always dress it up in cute outfits for display or use it to store accessories like ExtraPetite suggested... or even use it as a coat hanger!
