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 proved.
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 love 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.
