I am an art student (with a little fashion fetish) and i was dying to find a dummy to fit clothes onto without blowing hundreds of dollars on....
not to mention the painting possiblities!

Now I feel so lame for having spent $130 to buy a used dressform off Ebay.  I could have just made one myself for super cheap!  But, the bright side is, the dressform I bought is adjustable, and my weight fluctuates , so I'd have to make like three of these homemade guys just to fit each of my "sizes".  Thanks for the post!  Great idea.

Hey MorbidArt,
Thanks for posting this idea! A bunch of us Craftsters here in LA decided it would be a fun group project and made a video how-to during our first group get-together.
You can see it here:

it looks really good!! good job!

i made one for myself out of duct tape last summer, used and old t-shirt and got a friend to wrap me with duct tape. then i stuffed it with newspaper. but it has started to lose shape a bit, i think it's tipping on one side or something. i think i should have mounted it on a proper stand.

The dummy is such a fun and helpful idea - I HATE taking something off and on to fit it, it's difficult when your're doing it alone, too. I see these simple linen shifts in stores for $80!! and think "I'v got to make these myself!"

anyway - it looks like a fun project to do with with my sisters, we usually end up laughing hysterically over anything we do together anyway. Guess what we're doing at the next family reunion?! (there are 6 of us)

I've looked at directions from the referenced web site and it looks to me like the paper tape method might be the easiest - what do you experienced sewers have to say?
thanks, Linda in B'ham
