Look what my parents bought me for x-mas next year?
A PGM Industry Pro dress form! We found her at one of my favorite swapmeets/antique fairs for less than 1/2 the price they sell for new. She's in great condition with the exception of a little dirt. It looks like maybe some dark purple fabric transferred on to her too.
She's close to my measurements and has collapsible shoulders. I'm excited that I can work on a project for me and not have to try it on every two seconds. I can drape on her too!
She doesn't have a name yet. I can't think of anything I like. She's just "dress form" for now.
Anyways, I was really wondering if anyone could give suggestions for cleaning her. We vacuumed the linen and then took a Mr. Clean Eraser to her, but dirt didn't come off. I'm afraid of wetting the linen and being too abrasive because when we got a little rougher in the cleaning, the fabric seemed to start to stretch out of place. Any other suggestions?
