Very cute vest. I would like to hear more about the dress form too. Was it hard to make? Where did you get the pattern? I would think this would be a much better fit than you could possibly get from a purchased form. I imagine it required more than two hands.

The dress form is my duct tape dress form. I did a review on it on the web site reviews about a month ago. It is FANTASTIC. I cannot say how much I love it. I wanted to buy one, but couldn't afford it. I researched the duct tape dress form, and got my hubby to help. It was very easy, hubby made a really nice stand. And - I have a dress form that is exactly me. My forward sloping shoulders. My very long bust to waist, but short waist to hip ration. It is my shape. I will say it is a tad (1/2 - 3/4" larger than me, but I am on the upward part of the learning curve on sewing with it. I don't know how I have sewed without it all of these years. AND it was cheap - about $25 to make. I'll be glad to share more - I'm a real fan of my duct tape dress form.
