Yep, I'm very sad to say it, but Marsha has been disassembled and will be packed at UPS for return tonight. I got a VERY unexpected call from the company I got her from this morning whereby I was informed that I didn't know how to measure myself, I didn't know how to measure Marsha, and my turquoise blouse was obviously WAY TOO BIG for Marsha, and I needed to add a lot more padding!
I had spent so many hours getting her to what I thought was a very close fit. The lady disagreed with me and told me my blouse did not fit her AT ALL in the front or in the back. So, either I didn't know how to sew a blouse to fit me -- or Marsha needed a bunch more padding. I was so broken-hearted.
I had really become attached to her, and I was enjoying her so much. I wasn't DONE with her yet, but that was because I was still waiting for futher instruction that I never got.
The company has been more than nice to me about offering me a bigger form or taking this one back. I really didn't want to start over after spending all that time. As difficult as I am to fit, I never should have ordered it in the first place. But then, isn't that the figure that needs a dress form the most??? I don't know. I thought that for $1300, I would be getting the best choice out there.
Here, I say Goodbye to Marsha. I'm not too joyful, I have to say.
So now, I shall have to find something else to blog about. Think I'll go back to making a blouse-a-day from my Sure-fit Designs patterns.
If I EVER say I am thinking about ordering a dress form again, will somebody just shoot me!
No more blogging today. Have to make a 50-mile round trip tonight to get her packed up at UPS so FEDEX can pick her up. Sure glad Jerry bought the little delivery van.
