Watch a mild mannered woman go nuts trying to remember her sewing skills on projects which are completely over her head.

Dressforms....who wants a dress form?
A friend has just informed me that I will be getting some "vintage" dressforms. His grandmother was seamstres and ages ago I asked about any patterns or fabrics she may have left. I was told, no there is nothing..........until last week.
Last week I got a call saying do I want the dressforms in his grandmother's basement? Hell yes!!!!!!!!
Apparently in cleaning out the basement 6-8 dressforms have come to light in addition to pattern books and other sewing paraphanalia.
Here you can see one of the dressforms taken out of the brown paper wrapping but look closely....you can see at least 3 others just in this picture.
He brought 3 dressforms and some pattern books home with him and the others will appear on different trips.
Can you tell how excited I am about this! I have a funky dressform I got at goodwill which falls over a lot!
