A reader wrote last week asking for an illustrated series showing how to accessorize navy and gray suits to provide a variety of looks. That sounds like an excellent idea, if I can work out the details of how to do it in less than a month without hiring three photographic assistants. And one conclusion I reached quickly is that I need to locate a tailor's dummy for the clothes.
Now in addition to the inevitable comments relating tailor's dummies to yours truly, I am hoping to get a bit of help here. You see, I have not been able to find a proper one so far and I anticipate that a reader can point me to something more classic looking than the ladies sewing dummies available on eBay. Said form will be installed in the small photo studio I am setting up North of the City. With luck, the process of usefully illustrating ASW will become quite a bit easier, and that will be better for all of us.
Assuming, of course, that a reader can point me to a tailor's dummy.
