I have new dress forms!
And I’m not going to lie. I have no idea how I’m going to use them. I bought one for garment hanging and photography purposes and the other for fitting purposes but I haven’t really used them. They’re sort of a nice addition to make my sewing space look pretty.
The black dress form is adjustable and I can rotate some dials to make certain areas of the form bigger and smaller. I’m yet to figure out how to actually make it my size. There are so many dials and when I adjust each of them to my measurement, the circumferences end up bigger.
To be honest, I didn’t have to buy one (or two), but it’s been two years since I’ve been sewing and every seamstress needs a dress form. I’ve gotten used to sewing without one but maybe they’ll be the best things I never knew I needed once I’ve given them a chance, let’s see.
I have some exciting new tutorials coming your way. I’m going to go back to teaching how to draft a full garment. Recently I’ve been focusing on drafting techniques but it’s time to push boundaries and be a little bit more creative with my videos. I’m ready to put in the hard work for you guys!
So what next?
My next tutorial will be a Valentine’s Day special; a sexy babydoll dress for you to wear for your special someone. I have my lace and chiffon all ready and I will start working on this for release one or two weeks before Valentine’s Day (I’m still deciding what would be best, maybe two weeks will give people enough time to make it before 14th Feb? What do you think?).
Another project will be the Day and Night Dress Challenge 2018! I took part in this last year and although it was a bit of a rush the dresses came out lovely and I’m excited to see what I can put together this year.
Anyway guys, definitely stay in touch! I’ll try my best to keep you all updated and actually put myself in front of the camera so that you can see my face. In fact, my last YouTube video was of me sitting in front of the camera participating in the Five Questions One Take tag. So check that out and have a good week!
