If you recall, I had ordered MORE shoulder pads and more big flat pads (thigh pads) for Marsha. It turned out that my batting worked better for padding Marsha's hips and back, so the big pads were not used. I did put the extra shoulder pads on Marsha, but it made my problems worse instead of better.
Here is how my blouse fits me in the shoulders and neck:
And here is what the arm looked like when I attached it with all that extra shoulder padding:
How LOVELY is that? I wonder if they would let a 61 year old granny play football?
Following is a link to a video I made explaining how the day went and how I ended up taking out those extra shoulder pads. The whole idea was to get Marsha's shoulder-to-apex measurement to be the same as mine. And with those sky-high shoulders, it was. Later, I did remove the extra shoulder pads, and I was able to get her measurements pretty close. I also had to take the pole apart and rebuild it. I need to talk to Bobbie some more. She is supposed to call me back.
Soooooooooooo, I made that video and about that time Jerry got home and came upstairs. I told him my day's woes and explained that I was going to have to return the arms because they would not work. Mr. Fixit informed me that HE could fix them. I told him I had worked and worked with them, and they just looked crazy. He gave me that "you poor, pitiful creature" look and he immediately started working on Marsha. He had been working since 6 AM today, and I'm sure he was already worn out. If something is broken though, he HAS to fix it.
First, he told me the pole was wrong, and the people who made it were wrong and nobody knew anything, and he was putting it back the way it was. He did. Marsha was clear up in the sky again, so he had to undo the pole and put it back the Fabulous Fit way. He still says that spring is the goofiest thing he has ever seen since it has no purpose at all.
We got past that issue, and he picked up one of Marsha's arms and started working on that. He got the right arm in -- stuffed a bit of padding above it -- and it looked pretty good. Here he is working on her other arm. What a sweetheart! How do you like that top I painted on Marsha to cover up her bra?
