I came across this scene of Miss Mapp sitting in front of Diva’s sewing room, dress form behind her.
It reminded me that there have been 2 distinctly different dress forms, the older one, below, is probably based on a Gold dress form, and looks more like real people’s bodies.
The current forms, one of which is the Wolf brand, is based on a figure about 10 heads high, and not proportioned for many of us.
I’ve been searching the web for a Gold dress form, but so far, no luck.
Getting back to Mapp and Lucia briefly, I learned Friday that BBC started a new version in 2014.
Checked amazon, and they’re not out yet in the DVD format we use here in North America. Am grateful I was able to plug into YouTube and watch all 3 episodes during the door-painting.
Great way to sit through paint drying!
As you see on the upper left, my door was painted a lovely shade of blue.
