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.

Girls do not dress for boys. They dress for themselves, and of course, each other. If girls dressed for boys, they’d just walk around naked at all times.

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....
