New and improved Doris

Bless her – the poor girl will be getting a complex.

Doris (my brand new Lady Valet dressform) is fab.  I love her to bits.  But her boobs just aren’t big enough.  When she arrived this week I measured myself and faithfully dialled those measurements onto Doris.  I proudly showed her off to hubby and said “look – she’s the same shape as me now”.

“Actually, she’s not” he said “you’re not that shape at all”.  Well, I suppose he would know.

I measured myself again and checked against Doris’s dials.  Everything seemed to be correct so what was the problem?

Then I realised – I’m an E cup and poor old Doris is about a B.  The measurements were right but the curves weren’t.  What to do?

Do what any self-respecting girl does – get a padded bra!

By the way – that rotten velvet bodice has been reconciled to the carrier bag.  I genuinely don’t think I’ll ever be able to sew with velvet again.
