Our daughter is celebrating her 18th birthday today. Wow...18. I still think of her as my little girl, and I guess I always will. She still refers to me as "Mommy," and although that will soon change,I'm enjoying it for now.
I surprised her with this vintage Bauman salesman sample dress form that came to me with an amazing story. A friend of mine inherited 3 of these from her Aunt just recently. Her aunt was a dressmaker during the 1940's in New York, and she met her future husband on a train ride to New York. He happened to be a traveling dress form salesman!
My daughter has been sewing since she was 12, and I could not think if a more fitting gift than this dress form! As a favor to my friend, I will be selling one of these dress forms for my friend on my web site in the near future!
