I began to write this post 2 weeks ago but set it aside until now.
The number of blog posts lately is inversely proportional to amount of things that have been going on around here. I hope to update you on a few of them this week.
In the meantime, back to the delayed post.
This is Maggie the mannequin.
Although I have been making clothes for myself for most of my life, I have never owned a dressmaking model. After years of vacillating I finally purchased this one with some of my birthday money.
Here she is unpacked, assembled and firmly ensconced in my sewing room. I have begun making the size adjustments but have a bit more fine tuning to do.
I am looking forward to doing some more dressmaking for myself in the not too distant future and am confident that Maggie will be a useful adjunct when it comes to getting best fit possible.
