dress form.

I've wanted a dress form for years. They are expensive new and awkward and pricey to ship. I came across an idea online (here) on how to make your own. I blended two of their ideas together. I made a shell on myself out of duct tape (taping over a dress I didn't mind cutting up), cut up the front, took it off, and duct taped it back together. Then I put a first layer of paper mache. The beginning stage is pictured above.

I still need to put more layers of paper mache on. It's not perfect, but still should be great for sewing...it only cost me $4..the cost of the duct tape!
