I Love Fabric Store Sales!

I've lamented for awhile that I didn't have a dress form. It's hard to take pictures of yourself wearing your creations. At times I've even resorted to having my 3 year old (the only other person home with me during the day) try his hand at taking some pictures!

Well, I shall lament no longer:
I am the proud new owner of a dress form, thanks to a recent sale at Jo-Ann Fabrics ($100 off!).  I've already been enjoying it, both for photographing my creations (a post on my new blouse coming soon!), and for fitting and hemming a dress I've been making. 

Plus, they were having a sale on patterns!  Even Buttericks were on sale, and it seems like they never go on sale.  So, of course, I had to stock up.  :)

Of course, who knows when I'll have the time to make all of these.  My "to-sew" list is already miles long.  :)  Oh well, I'll get to them eventually--and I'll have tons of fun making them when I do! 

By the way, if you think I deserve it, don't forget to head over to seventhirtythree and vote for me!  :)

Glad you finally got a dress form. And lots and lots of patterns. Royal Wedding on the brain, eh? Or do you intend to start wearing hats. :)

So cool! Hope it makes life easier! Although your 3yr old probably takes fun pictures!

Lucky you! I've been thinking about a dress form lately. I'm sure you will love it!

Completely jealous. I too want a dress form. Happy to see you got one. And can anyone resist fabric store sales?? They get me into lots of trouble.
