Do You Name Your Dress Form?

(image from

I just posted this to Sew Retro too.

I have a question if you don't mind. I have been reading a lot of sewing blogs lately where the dress forms are referred to by name, such as Delores, Dotty, etc. This got me to thinking. Is this traditional? Do the people who name their dress forms also name their sewing machines, Kitchen Aid mixers, cars, bicycles, etc? I see there is a post today about Betty, a new (vintage) and beautiful sewing machine.

Does your dress form have a name? What is it and what is the story behind it? I'd love to know. Thank you!

I only name my sewing equipment. I chose my grandmothers' names. My mom names her cars, and she has a plant named after her deceased father that he had given her over 20 years ago!

I actually did a post about that on my blog.

Come and visit if you get a chance.

I haven't named my dressforms because I can't think of any cool enough, but I do like hearing the names other people have given theirs!
