Re: Paper-Tape Dress Form

I can remember a neighbor coming to the house and "fitting" my Mother like this back in 1948. My Mom used this form for all of her life after that. She used one of my Dad's undershirts when she had this done - T-shirts for women were unheard of at that point. And my Dad installed a plywood base under the hip line and mounted it on a metal pole with 4 wheels attached. We called "her" Matilda. Oh, and she was stuffed....with lots of balled up newspapers. We used to dress her up and put her on the porch every Halloween.
