Merry Christmas to Me!

My parents sent me my Christmas gift and she is beautiful!:

Woo hoo!  A dress dummy.  Thanks mom and dad!  I will definitely get the fit right now.  And hemming, oh my god, I can't wait to hem with this thing.  Life just got 1000 times better.  Apparently Nicole was a conspirator, and I appreciate all the thought guys....shucks.  She arrived on the second night of Hanukkah, so I have named her Shoshana in honor of this cross-holiday gift. 

I was a little worried about the dum--er, Shoshana--because the box reads size 10 to 16, and I'm on the cusp, but I have no worries anymore because I learned this box is a damned dirty liar.

If you continue reading this post, you certify that you are either not my mother or you won't get upset I opened my Christmas present early.  Thank you for your compliance.  This is a legally binding agreement.

Here she is in all her glory!!!!!!!

Aw yeah, looking good Shoshana!  These things are so wild, check out the inside:

Also, here is a creepy picture of the dummy that I can't just keep on my camera at home.  Like I said, creepy.

Pretty couch, though.
ANYWAY, she starts a little skinny.  You should eat more, Shoshana.  I got her all dialed up to size and here she is!!!


What a heroic camera angle!  She's beautiful!  I don't fully trust my own measurements (see exhibits First through Fifth), so I'll have to call Lauren in to make sure she's where she needs to be.  But in the meantime....sigh....it's great.


  1. Lovely! Dressforms are wonderful, aren't they?

  2. I told you not to open the box until Christmas! You peeked when you were little and I see that you haven't changed a bit. :)
    Love, Mom


Thank you! I love comments!
