A few years ago I made myself a new dress just in time for Mother’s Day. I also made my daughter a matching dress, and we attended a Mother/Daughter luncheon at church in our new outfits. I’d never made myself a floor-length dress before, and it was a challenge finding somewhere to hang it for pinning the hem. I decided I needed an adjustable dress form. I’ve made three more dresses from the same pattern since then, and I simply love the way they fit!
It’s been fun teaching my daughter about using the dressform, and showing her how it helps to make dresses that fit properly. I think, as Mother’s Day approaches again, that it’s time I bring my dressform out once again and make myself another dress!
