oh this is the first time i have seen this. i've been living under a rock.
my old roommate who went to apparel school had this dumb dress form that was a stupid size 2 that expanded to a size 4! what do men really know about designs for women anyways!

this board really is a great mine for information.
 
and I LOVE THE PEA COAT
so classic!

Great job on your pea coat. So cute and classic. Did you use a pattern or just wing it?

Hehe, I did that to a friend of mine a while back, but to make a custom corset pattern, I never thought of making a dress form!  that is awesome and so much cheaper.  And if you change shape, duct tape is cheap!

Your pea coat looks great!  I admire all you craftsters who recon things.  It gives trips to the thrift store an entirely new meaning.
