Very, very excited about my latest eBay purchase. It all started out when Leah and I took some horrendously disgusting photos of ourselves for the Etsy store. We realized, "If we can't stand to look at these photos, who is ever going to purchase the clothes??"
Enter the dress form. Leah's about to have her own for costuming classes she'll be taking in the fall. These little babies double nicely as Etsy models. I've always admired vintage dress forms used by Etsy sellers -- however, I have not adored their hefty price tag.
Luckily for me, I found this incredible Adjust-o-Matic dress form on eBay last week! It's a cardboard paper dress form that adjusts to fit the size clothing you're making. After doing a little research, I found that they were manufactured in the late 1960s and 70s.
She's a much lovelier model. She also scares the living daylights out of our cats (and me, when I walk downstairs in the dark).
