Lately I have been thinking (ok maybe obsessing) about dress forms. It seems it is always so hard to find a decent one with that vintage character that I love. Countless times I have been shopping at antique stores and the dress forms say "display only." So today I was having lunch with my good friend and co-worker and I was showing him a project I started using a dress form I currently own. About a half hour after lunch he calls me and says, "You are never gonna believe this. There's a dress form next to someone's trash that looks like they are throwing it out." I thought he was playing a late April Fools joke on me! Since we were both working, he called his wife M and she was able to talk with the homeowners. Sure enough, they told M it was indeed headed to the incinerator since they no longer had a use for it. When M told them she knew just the person (ME!) who would love to have it, they were ecstatic. The dress form is now mine! She is full size wasp waist style and has a nice stand that she is attached to. She is gorgeous and perfectly vintage (Oh and by the way she does not stink and wasnt even dusty). I cannot believe my luck. We decided to call her "April." Here she is!
