This is Martha....the dress form. She comes from Martha's Vineyard. A few years ago Hannah wanted to learn how to sew and asked for one for Christmas. I had seen the ones in Pottery Barn but thought they were too expensive. My mom said she'd search for one and sure enough she found her for us. We love Martha...the neighbors were a bit spooked by her at first when we had her in the window.
My mom lives on Martha's Vineyard..lucky for us. After asking around about the dress form, a friend of hers who's a seamstress was moving and thought it was time to say goodbye to Martha. Although Martha lived on the Vineyard for a long time..she is originally from New York where she was a wedding dress model. Now she's in my daughters bedroom modeling Hannah's school clothes. I love that Martha has a story behind her.
Now we just have to get out that sewing machine and really put Martha to work.
