I am a tailor, writer, mother, partner, Buddhist, vegan, and human being. Our current household consists of Ralph and I, our two teenagers Phoenix and Nels, and four kitties. Ralph and I have been together going on twenty three years. We started our family in the lovely seaport-cum-tourist town of Port Townsend, Washington, the United States. We moved to Grays Harbor in 2007 to be close to my childhood home and my father, who was dying of cancer. I lost him in August 2008, but we’ve stayed here and built a life in Aberdeen, Washington.
I love to write, practice yoga, volunteer, and watch B-movies. I do these things while raising and unschooling two active and awesome children; our oldest entered college at 13, and has since graduated and started his design business. Our youngest is currently engaged in gaming, bot-programing and runs a popular Discord server. I design and create clothing, provide consulting services, write, publish sewing tutorials and sew-alongs, and work in web and graphic design.
I moderate comments. Hate speech isn’t tolerated. In general, I follow O’Reilly’s blogger code of conduct. Any questions or emails sent to me may be made public (many of them aren’t); I usually use a first initial if I refer to anyone by name. If you’d like any degree of anonymity or for your email to be excluded from potential publication, do let me know when you write.

I have a question about the Bootstrap Fashion dress form and its inner support.
I have sewn the shell and am now about to sew the inner support and I seem to be misunderstanding something in the instructions.
In step 3, you sew the front support pieces to the sleeve. However the picture shows the front inner support edge an unspecified distance away from the sleeve edge. Aren’t the edges supposed to match?
I only ask because you have sewn this already and know.
Hello Alexia! It’s been so long since I’ve made that dressform! You may get better answers in a Bootstrap group online!
That said, No I don’t believe you need to attach the sleeve and support ALL the way up! But I can’t remember, to be honest – and I’d have to take my form apart to see!
