Meet Maria and her Diamond Dish Scarf

In Dishcloths, Mother-in-law, Sewing on November 14, 2008 at 4:20 pm

It came yesterday!

It’s an adjustable dress form! I’ve wanted a dress form for years, but (1) could never find one that had my exact measurements and (2) could never find one that was reasonably priced. The beauty of this dress form is that you can adjust the bust, waist and hips to your exact measurements. I found it on Amazon of all places with free shipping.

I named her Maria. I didn’t like the idea of having two Marie’s in the house. That would have been weird.

Maria is sporting a skirt that I made for myself a few years ago as well as a sweater made for me by my MIL. The sweater was crocheted and given to me as a Christmas present. It’s so warm and fits me perfectly as Maria so kindly┬áproved.

Note to my MIL: I removed the buttons because – to be frank – they wouldn’t all button this year. Dan isn’t the only one gaining weight from my cooking. Yet, I really┬álove the sweater like this. Thank you!

In knitting news, I finished the scarf I had been working on.

Of course, I had Maria model it for me. She doesn’t fidget quite as much as I do when standing in front of a camera.

Since it was such a simple design, I am offering it as a free download.

  1. What a great idea!!! Maria looks fabulous in her outfit – BTW that’s a nice sweater you were given by MIL.

    Your scarf also looks terrific. Congratulations on a unique design and fun twist on the popular dishcloth!

  2. I’m jealous! I want a dress form, though I know I really won’t use it!

  3. Both Maria and her ensembles are lovely!

  4. That is the most well dressed dress form I’ve ever seen! I love the scarf. I’m going to have to save that for a future special project.

  5. That scarf is lovely- I may have to make one! A dress form would be great, but where do you put it????

  6. Maria is AWESOME! And she looks lovely in her pretty outfit. Love the scarf! :)

  7. I love Maria and I’m very jealous. I’m now scouting my house for a place for my very own. Can I ask for one for Christmas?

  8. Gorgeous sweater by your MIL! Maria is darling, lol, and I am so downloading the pattern for that scarf (thank you!), it’s very cool!!

  9. I love the architecture of the scarf. Nice work!
