How cool is this?

In Threads magazine a month or two ago there was an article on making of dress forms at one of the oldest dress form makers in the country. Well in my blog surfing today I found a link to a video the Science channel did on the same company. Too cool.

Click here to see how Wolf Dress Forms are made. I laughed when they talked about the "incision" on the side for the collapsible shoulders mechanism. And check out some of the perky "girls" on those forms. They must be for alien women who have never had children or gained 5 pounds they didn't need.

  2. Thanks Cheryl, it so reminded me of watching Mr Rogers all those years with the kids when he would have the segments of how they made things. I loved that. :) Simple pleasures you know.
