Sometimes I get funny looks when I refer to my dressform by name, as if I'm going soft in the head. I talk to her too, but I won't tell that to any non sewing people! Who here on PR has named their dressform?

Here is Matilda masquerading as me in her padded jacket. She's a good sport.

Matilda looks lovely! If I had one, I'd name her too!

Mine is Sharona, named after the song. It happened to be playing on the radio as I unpacked her way back when. I'm getting a new one soon, and I don't know what I'll end up naming it. Maybe Wolfie?

Mine is Gertrude. It just popped in my head the day I was setting her up on her stand.

Roberta (a long-leggedy wolf full-body form) named after the Ginger Rogers movie (back in the golden days of Hollywood, every starlet had her own made-to-measure dressform - apparently Ginger's form was perfect) & Magdalena (a more recent dressform, and unfortunately built a bit more like me than Roberta).

Neither are quite right and I STILL need to start my MyTwin project.

Mine is Lizzie-in honor of my mother and maternal grandmother. My mother hated her actual first name(Lizzie). I was about 20 before she revealed what the L. in her signature stood for.

Mine is Rosie, because she's red. I'm so clever.

The other day, I walked into my sewing room to find my 5 yo dd standing on a chair and slow-dancing with Rosie to a song on the radio. She even had her head resting on Rosie's bosom.

It was a little disturbing....
