I've wanted a dress form for like forever, but I really wanted one that was more true to
my own size. Ive always seen and liked the ones that people made themselves,
but was unsure if I could do it properly.
I dont know anyone in my area that sews, heck I personally don't know anyone besides
my mom that sews, period. (Mom travels a lot) Every time I run the idea by my hubby,
of wrapping me up in layers of duct tape, he laughs and sais, " I can buy you one of those things."
Well, I know that, but it's a little more customised to make one, duh!
Anywho, I purchased the supplies I needed, and my 11year old son and
7 year old daughter was eager to help Mom out!
Of course once hubby saw how serious I was, he gave in! I actually had the help
of 3-tapers, so it was a lot of fun. The kids were so amused, and dad thought he was a pro.
Of course she is my duct tape baby, and I stuffed her with polyfill, sprayed her with
3m adhesive, put a paperthin layer of batting on her to smooth her out, and make pinning easier, and I made a nice snug fit knit cover for her so the kids could quit smurking!! lol
I gave her a butterfly tatoo, lol.
