My first day of school
I started my class today and boy was I surprised. It’s not a flat pattern, pattern making class, but a draping class. Now that’s one good surprise. Of course that means I finally have to get a dress form. Can you believe that I still don’t have one? I think I’ve been talking about it for about oh 6 years. I actually have to bring it with me to class as there are only 7 dress forms in class and there are 40 students. 40! Can you believe that? It was amazing to see so many interested in taking a pattern making class.
But back to the dress form… I think I need a lightweight one, an adjustable one with a pinnable cover. Originally I was thinking of something like a Wolf. But that model is too heavy to bring back and forth every week, not to mention a wee bit on the expensive side. So I think for this class and for my first time buying a dress form, I might opt for something less expensive.
I am considering these two models so far.
Ideally I would like the waist to have the option of being adjusted longer, like on the Singer dress form. At any rate, I need to decide fast. I need it by next Monday. Your advice would be appreciated.
