• Short Summary

    Beatrice O'Connor makes a dressmaking dummy from Veronica Barry's figure.

  • Description

    London.

    Various shots of Beatrice O'Connor sticking gummed paper all over the curvaceous body of her friend, Veronica Barry. Veronica is wearing a tubular body stocking. When the body and neck are all covered, Beatrice cuts through the back of the cast and frees Veronica. The two women admire the shape after it has been coated with shellac.

    We then see Veronica wearing a jersey polo neck dress, standing beside her cast, clad in a similar outfit. She looks approvingly at her 'dummy'.
