Q&A with mecht.

Karmi55 asked:
Love it, you have a great eye for color combos. Maybe the darts can be lowered a bit on the bust next time? I love the long sleeves. Was the back a little snug, I would suggest a compression foundation for smoothness. Maybe Barbara can help with a suggestion for better fit.

Dear Karmi,
Arleenie asked:
what is on top of your paper dress form? What is the white? Years ago I made a duct tape double and was never very happy with it. My sister in-law has agreed to wrap me (I bought the paper tape from Blick - it came very quickly)
mecht. answered:
On the top of my paper dress form I installed a sponge (normally used in the kitchen) covered whith a white little sox (for tennis). I use it for pins.
