There is another thread (or more than one) that discusses dress forms, but I am also crazy about mannequins – those plastic or wooden forms that represent the human body that we can drape clothes onto, for example, to sell them. Mannequins come in all sorts of varieties, but in general they are quite expensive – I just don’t have the money to buy many of them. I found some plastic “half mannequins” – a molded plastic shape for the front only that incorporates a clothes hanger – they make great portable mannequins – I found them at a Chinese store-that-has-everything in Toronto. I also have a lamp that I use as a mannequin, it has the form of a (young) woman’s body.
I would love to hear if other people share my interest in mannequins, and if folks have found places to buy them which are less expensive. I’ve looked at eBay, but they are often quite expensive there as well! Do other people have stories to tell about mannequins in their sewing room?
