(Side story : Okay I purchased a size 8 Roxy Dress Form for a draping class I enrolled in so I could learn how to draft patterns. I took the class and really enjoyed it. However the size 8 dress form was a little to small for me. I have learned that for draping it is important to have a dress form that is actually your size. So instead purchasing another one, I decided I would make a cover for the adjustable dress form I already owned).
I made this one by basically drafting a pattern for it on the actual form. I found duck to be a little difficult to work with but I believe it got the job done. Its not sexy but it will work for drafting patterns to better fit me. I have also included some photos on how it was constructed.
Daydream about fall sewing with boho layers, oversized jackets, and a leopard pencil skirt.
