My Vintage dress form


A few people have emailed me about my dress form Ellie....here is my original post about her from a year ago...

This dressform was actually molded to my mom's body, sometime in the 1950s. I call her "ellie"...not sure why, just a little name that stuck. I actually try to use it for myself, but alas, my butt is much bigger...It does come in handy for just pinning and seeing how something looks. I believe it was done at a Singer Sewing Store, ya know, back in the day when there were alot of fabric stores that ONLY sold fabric? Oh my, what a concept. I just love vintage stuff.........
