What is this headless creature before you? This is my vintage dressform modeling a piece of fabric that has me in its clutches.
It's not so fearsome as all that, you say.
Well, perhaps not.
I've been deliberating over whether or not I like it for a week already.
Is it ugly or is it pretty?
Do you hate it or do you love it?
Should I return or keep it?
I can't make up my mind either.
I like it very much but not as much as 5 yards' worth. I can't bear the thought of shipping it heartlessly back to its home in Georgia.
Let me think about this rationally. Since it came in two pieces, one 1 yard and one 4 yards, and I like it very much as 1 yard but find any more than that makes me feel queasy, I think I shall keep a yard and let Fabric.com retrieve the other four at their own expense. There, that works out well, doesn't it?
But a yard isn't enough for a dress! And in case you don't know, I've made a vow not to buy fabric without an immediate plan for its use. Help me think of what to do with this, quick!
