1  Make your own dressform! (super img heavy) in Completed Projects by octipii on: January 05, 2008 08:38:01 PM
kayak girl and I have been talking about making our own dressforms (based on threadbanger easy podcast tutorial )for a while and we finally got around to doing mine.

It's amazingly simple and everyone should really make one. Just start by putting on an old shirt (It has to be really long or just use a piece of fabric to extend it) and have your friend wrap you in duct tape

Wrap around your torso but when you get to the chest area, start going up and down.
Excuse my weirdness...

Do a couple layers...

Cut it off you (avoid your actual shirt or you next project will be patching) Cheesy

tape the back up

and if you stuff it you're done.

But I went to my local thrift store and got a lamp base to stick it on during stuffing. So here it is:

and posing with my hoodie and scarf...

I love it! and it's so useful!

Please comment!

i'm so pleased you like it. I was afraid you had disappeared off the face of the earth for a while...  Smiley

And the cards on the tin are a mini pack my sister won at a birthday party, i think. I sort of stole them from her. but, it's not like she could haved really use them! So, i was really doing her a favor.

*And here are some photos I took before I sent:

The pins:

and the pillowcase:

It says " After this i shall think nothing of falling down stairs. Also, "It would be so nice if something made sense for a change!"*

This was the second stencil I ever did- way earlier in the year.  Looking back, I'm suprised it turned out so well.
