So I want to make a dressform of my 10 month old.  Mostly so that I can model the clothes I make to sell without putting pictures of my kid on the internet, thats not an option. 

Asking my 10 month old to stay still while I duct tape her and then cut it off is also pushing it.  FAR.  So I was thinking of just taking an old onsie and stuffing it then mounting it on a base somehow.  DO you think this will work??  any other ideas or suggestions?

Duct tape the onsie and stuff it until it's the right shape & dimensions... it's a bit tricky, bubbas having that hollow back and protuding tummy, but it can be done.  Check the measurements on the form against your baby's measurements or a detailed sizing chart.  I'd probably go with the latter, unless your little one will tolerate being measured.  I made one and mounted it on the base of an old pedastal fan.  Came in handy for checking elastic waists and such.

I am thinking in the same lines... except my grandkids are size 4,  I am thinking of taking a size 4 sleeper w/feet.. and stuffing it with fiber fill to the deminsions of the girls... using an old Jo ann fabric ghost (the legs are about the right length.. ) to keep it upright...
At least I will have somethiing that resembles them>

You might try a sleeper..
