Christmas in March
I have a new prized possesion: My lovely roommate Lillian wrangeled up two dress forms this weekend -- one for each of us -- for the ridiculous price of 100 dollars each. They're top-of-the-line, 5 times that price new, and virtually new still as all they were used as were display mannequins. They've got collapseable shoulders and a cage bottom and are size 6, a good middle ground. I'm planning on trying to create a fat suit of sorts to pad it out to my size -- something that's removeable, like a stuffed dress, that morphs the form into my exact shape. I want so badly to be able to drape my own clothes, especially sun dresses in the summertime.
