    At the GW on Friday they had a Singer adjustable dress form for a FEMALE, but it did not have a base on it. It was behind the "better quality" counter, but when I saw it was female, I left it behind, they wanted $39. It was like the one below:

    So hard to part with your first (2nd, 3rd and 4th) [​IMG] They all look brand new. 3rd one has a slight crease on the tip where folded but should come out easily with some steam.

    stuff i found over the weekend:

    "Hickey Freeman Design" 42R casual jacket. quarter lined. 100% wool, but it's a very open weave (lots of texture) that lets a lot of light shine through. 3/2 roll, single vent. i've never heard of this line of HF, anyone care to chime in? the color is a brown/olive pattern. it's too small for me, so if anyone wants to trade for anything in a 44R - 46R lemme know.

    Measurements:

    • chest: 22.5 P2P
    • waist: 20.5" at middle button
    • length:31" BOC
    • sleeve length: 24" (with about an inch of material inside the sleeve)
    [​IMG]

    Hickey Freeman Collection navy blazer in 46R. tag says Hickey Freeman Collection Nordstrom (looks like a very recent tag). 90% wool, 10% cashmere. cut = boardroom. tagged 46R. brass (i think) buttons. they're brass-colored, kind of antiqued looking so they're not shiny.

    Measurements:
    • chest: 24" P2P
    • shoulders: 20.5
    • length: 32 BOC
    • sleeve length: 24
    • waist: 22.6 measured at top (out of two) buttons

    [​IMG]

    both items are available for trade, let me know if you are interested.
