i decided to learn how to sew clothes this summer (i'm a quilter) so i thought i could use a dress form. i think i wrapped the tape too tight - i only did 1-2 layers because i couldn't breathe!

It's a fine line between 'hobby' & 'mental illness

I've had a giant roll of paper tape in a drawer for like a year and a half, with the intention of making one of these.  How did you find it?  Was it difficult?  Did you use the kind with the adhesive that needs to be water-activated, or the one that's just already sticky?

yup i feel that too! seeing me from the outside is more than y heart could take right now! ask me again in spetember when i've had a few months of salads... Cheesy

no, i really want one of these, might be good to have a 'before' form and an 'after' to compare and boost my confidence as i lose some weight!
