That is really cute. I love how it's painted.  I've been meaning to make two of these forever.

I'm also a fan of The Gilmore Girls. Love her name!! lol

My aunt is a professional seamstress. She said the ready made forms are trash because you can't adjust them enough. These homemade ones are so much better. I plan to make one of me and one of my sis soon. Thanks for the reminder. Yous looks great.
Oh, one other thing to mention. The paper ones don't distort the way the duct tape ones do, from what I've read, and they're cheaper to make.
Congrats on your new assistant!

Smiley I was going to buy the ready-made ones but the dimensions (in relation to my itty-bitty body) would not be correct. That kinda defeats the purpose of having an assistant.

Good job! I made one of these out of duct tape and it didn't look half as nice. Question, though. Are you able to pin things onto it or is it too hard to poke the pins through?

Yep, you can poke her with pins.
