My new best friend

I have a new best friend and her name is Myrtle.

She came to stay yesterday and today I adjusted her measurements and checked the fit. The top was made in September 2004 and it is still one of the nicest fitting tops I have ever made.

I am very happy as I have wanted a dressmaker's model for a long time. It's only a budget model and I bought it on ebay, but I am delighted with it. An added bonus is that it comes with an adjustable stand so you can put trousers on it which might be very useful next time I tackle pants.

Now I have to sew something so I can use Myrtle.


  1. Hello Myrtle! So nice to see you here. I love her stripes top :) Can not wait to see your new garment, Kathy.
    Happy Sewing!

  2. I hope you and Myrtle have a long and rewarding friendship :). Sorry to read you troubles with the blouse.

  3. A perfect best friend - she will never answer back and she will always look her best!

  4. Uwww, good for you. I want a french, pinnable one! :-)

  5. I bought a dressmaker's model 30 years ago, she's now living with one of my daughters. Myrtle will be fun to have around, she looks good in her striped top!
