Hello!

I've been a lurker for a while but I haven't had the urge to post anything until now. After seeing other people who had made dressforms out of duct tape and reading on the importance of one, I decided to make one for myself. I ended up taping myself into it with a little help from my mom.

Sorry for the fuzzy pictures.

[edit 4/8/06]
I've added a leg to my dummy. Unfortunatly, I didn't really plan out how I was going to put the stand into it, so I can only put pants legs onto the dummy and not whole pants.

Thanks for looking!

Many thanks to all!

FunkyKristen- I was able to tape most of me into it. The only help I needed was for some parts of my back and my shoulder blades.

PelesGrrl- Just find a friend that can stick around for about an our or so!

Amy UK- I ended up using a little less than 2 rolls, but some parts only have one layer of tape. I suggest using more.
