I finally made a custom dress form yesterday, using the duct tape and t-shirt method. To top it off, I used a draping technique to create a cover using a lightweight ribbed knit. The process was very easy and straightforward. For a stand, I’m thinking of using PVC pieces.
Close-fitting t-shirt, 2 rolls of duct tape, old scissors, cardboard scraps (for openings), 2 bags of polyester fiberfill, thread, and 1 yard of black rib knit fabric.
There are several tutorials online, at etsy.com, threadsmagazine.com, and here at Burdastyle.
