Hey everyone,
I realise this topic has most likely been done before, and I have seen threads where people have permanently altered their dressform but I have just bought what is probably a dressform made in the 70s and after fixing it up with fibreglass, I really don't want to be taping anything to it. I do however, need to make its size 10 form (its old and not adjustable) a size 14. Does anyone have any ideas about how I could do this? Or point me in the right direction? My husband suggested using an old bra on it and filling this, but of course at this stage, that would make it a 10DD...!
Thanks Smiley

I just used strips and scraps of batting to pad mine out.  I didn't need to tape or pin anything as the batting sticks to itself as you wrap, and then when I had the correct shape and size I covered it with an old jersey dress to hold everything in place.  You could probably use a fitted t-shirt as well, as long as it is long enough to cover all the way down.
