Why am I ELATED? Because she is very nicely clothed in her little jumper, and she is attractive insofar as how SHE looks. Her shoulders are right as to one higher and the width of them. That is very nice!
Why am I DOWNHEARTED? Because I DO NOT look like that! I sent them a video, pictures in my underwear, 8 pages of measurements, and this is what they came up with? Her apex's were two inches too high. Her bottom is round and full -- mine is flat. Her stomach is as flat as a board. Mine is very round and full. I measure 34 around the upper chest. She measures 37. I have one hip HIGHER than the other -- hers are both exactly the same. My bust is 41. Hers is 40. Her waist is the same as mine, and her hips are the same as mine at one location.
AND, still not a single picture. I have FIVE emails from Fabulous Fit promising me pictures. I NEVER got them.
I guess they figure that if they leave me alone this time, and they don't call and insult me telling me I can't sew and I can't measure, that I will keep the dress form -- and I will. Jerry will help me and she will be exactly like me eventually.
My final review of Fabulous Fit is this: Very nice dress form, but very poor customer service. You cannot believe what they tell you on the phone or in an email. I find this very disappointing as I was so looking forward to raving about the customer service after all the promises made to me. I won't lie about it though. I will post a full review over at Patternreview.com, and you will see Lucy in future videos.
Other than that, Phylly and I had a BLAST today, and Margaret came over because we were all going to go to Johnnie's for lunch. When Margaret arrived, she asked me when Lucy was coming. I told her I had no idea. She asked if I had tracked it. I told her I didn't know how. So she told me to go to Fedex.com, and the rest was simple. LO AND BEHOLD, we found out she was coming TODAY. So Phylly ordered me to fix lunch because as soon as we would leave, the Fedex truck would come. Fortunately, I had Margaret's favorite dish: broccoli salad! (JK -- She hates it!) We had ham sandwiches, chips and dip, salad and ice cream for dessert. We decided that was better than Johnnie's anyway.
Phylly worked on her new red dress all day long, and I made the cutest polka dot top for myself. Look for pictures of it tomorrow. I have to put the neckband on, and I can't do it tonight because Dancing With The Stars is on. I can't miss that.
I will be doing a review of my very first Silhouette top pattern. I am very pleasantly surprised at the amazing fit right-out-of-the-box. And Peggy Sagers says she isn't that smart. Her patterns have B, C and D cup sizing. VERY NICE feature!!!
