She's a Lady...

A sneaky peek of my latest creation. Photos coming next week!

For my birthday/christmas present my parents gave me a Lady Valet adjustable dress form. I really needed to replace my first dress form (a flaming red Singer) after the part that holds the torso to the hips broke. I tried several times to get in touch with them to find out if I could buy a new part, but to no avail.

Anyway, the Lady... she's lovely. All vintage-y looking and pretty. She was easy to put together, easy to adjust to my measurements and displays my garments so well.




She also looks pretty sitting in my little sewing corner in our living room...

  7. Ooh pretty! I have a red singer dress form. I find I don't actually use it that much. I don't know why! I just tend to try everything on to fit it. Maybe it's because I don't sew for other people.

    1. Hi Jeanette, I got this when I lived in Australia and I've just checked and it doesn't mention anything about NZ or international postage. However, you could email them to ask? When I was first doing some research about them I had emailed over a few questions and they were super helpful - http://sewing-online.com.au/Dressmakers_Models/lady_valet_dress_form/#

      Good luck!
