…those people who really want to know what they can do for you and stop at nothing to do it for you, right there and then.
Sue gave me this old (inherited) dress form some months back, it is an adjustable one, so not very sturdy. I would like it to go to a good home, so for the time being she lives in our living room.
The phone rang last night and it was a lovely person in distress, needing her wedding dress in 2 weeks time. She happens to get married to a lovely man who I know from years back… so I said YES CAN DO.
We met this morning and decided on a design and I wanted to get started with making a toile. NO calico, no pattern, no lining… and NO WHEELS, since my car is presently at the panel beaters!
So I rang my friend and she organised a private chauffeur to take me to Spotlight and back home, after spending a good hour there!
I have cut the pattern and realised that the dress form happens to be (without adjustment) this lovely laddies’ size! WOA!
Thank you so much, Sue and Michael for always being there for me, in the right place, at the right time…
What a coincidence…. destiny, really!
I’m sure there will be a beautiful dress out in the wild very soon 😉
(lovely dress form as well )
I love it when things happen like that… thanks for stopping by…
So amazing Swantje… good luck to you and Ruth and Gary. You are truly a life saver. xxx
It was so wonderful to meet Ruth.
