Making the dress form

I've had a few failed attempts now at garment making, so I've decided to invest in a dress form; hopefully this will help with the fitting and look of my garments.  After researching, and seeing the prices!, I decided to make my own form which would be true to my actual shape, and a lot cheaper!  Threads website had instructions, and my husband helpfully, but begrudgingly, wrapped me up in duct tape.  I've filled the inside with stuffing and put the form onto a hat stand bought from Ikea.  It's not the neatest thing (next one would be a lot better I think), but hopefully it will do the job.

  1. I bet the husband secretly laughed about the process. Will be intersting to see how it goes.
