I’ve been remiss on keeping up with my Dress Form Double. Phyllis and I got hers all padded out and she’s off to the races with it, but I have been a slacker. I still needed to do the base form cover. My dress form is a Roxy size 10. In theory, it should map to the Vogue size 14 fitting shell. But guess what? Even dress forms have fitting issues! You can see the changes I need to make to the shell to make it fit the form. Once I have the seams/darts/pinches all sewn out, I’ll cut down the seam allowances. Hopefully Phyllis can come up this weekend and we can pad it out using our oh-so-scientific method. You know, the “put some padding on, look at the real person, eyeball more padding, repeat” method.
Earlier this week, I was in Boston for some meetings, and I walked through the Copley Place mall, where they were hosting an installation of fashion designs from students at MassArt. They were gorgeous! The most memorable pieces were from non-traditional materials. I can tell you – these kids put the yabos on recent seasons of Project Runway to shame. There is genuine talent and incredible creativity! So here you go- some pretty for your day.
Now for the cool stuff…
The installation runs through September 27. You can see information about it at MassArt’s Website.
I found all these outfits to be so inspiring! Now I just need to get the dress form double done so I can get going on my fall wardrobe.
