Cool! did you just staple the fabric in place? or how is it attached, if not?

Your dress form looks fantastic!  I've not had an opportunity to see this kind of dress form up close, I'm guessing you can take the pieces apart to cover?

I used hot glue to attach the fabric.

The panels do open up quite a bit on this dress form. they have those butterfly screws holding everything in tight. Although there were a few tight spots to get at, I used a butter knife and various non tools to hold the glue in place.
