Reading Refashion blogs has convinced me that I NEED a dress form. I’ve seen a few over the past few months but they were too expensive, too small, or in bad shape. I checked Craig’s List and found this I talked to the seller and decided that this was the form I was looking for. So I took an afternoon drive and came home with this
$40 was much less than the 80-100 I had budgeted for a dress form, but this one was so far away I would need to factor in gas consumption(+$15). It still came in under budget.
I found the same dress form listed on Amazon.
The lady I bought it from said “I paid good money for it years ago, but I’m just not doing that much sewing these days”. I got home and was adjusting the form to fit me when I found this tag from 2008.
She made a profit and I got a deal. Win-Win!
I’m eager to get started on my first refashion with the help of a form. Total spent thrifting in February $67.14
