Make Your Own Dress Form.
No, My Double and I are still not speaking. While I cannot in good conscience lay complete blame on her for the imperfections of the March Dress, she isn’t completely innocent either. I am thinking of loaning her to a friend for a night or two just on principle. And if that doesn’t work, it might just teach M.D. a lesson to dangle a replacement in front of her non-existent nose.
Coincidentally a homemade dress form is a project I have been wanting to try for quite some time and according to Sew with Distinction creating a clone is pretty easy, if a little creepy. A taped up version of my own headless body is not something I really want to see lounging in my workspace. Still, the benefits when it comes time for fittings or draping might be nice.
It seems all one needs are:
1) 1” wide tape
2) Long men’s undershirt
4) Garter belt and stockings
5) A friend
I might just have to make time for this experiment in cloning at some point. What a wild afternoon that would be. Torso party, anyone?
