introduction and asking for advice
Hi everyone, I have just joined the forum and thought I would introduce myself. My name is Diane and I live in the Hunter Valley, Australia where the temperature is currently a nice sunny 20 (70) degrees in midwinter. I sew, crochet, dance and garden. I teach medieval dance and frequently make medieval costumes, as well as Anime costumes for my oldest daughter, and general sewing for myself, hubby and both daughters (5 and 20).
I have a question, please. I have just been given 2 older dressmakers dummys, but the adjustment mechanisms seem stuck and I am loath to force them. Can anyone offer advice as to how to adjust them, I decided against WD40, or oil as I wasn’t sure how the plastic would react, and I was worried about transfer to fabric later. Any suggestions gratefully read and appreciated.
