I just started sewing and was looking for a used dress form…not finding anything suitable, I decided to make my own.

Material Notes

Duct tape, scissors, old t-shirt





Just google DIY Dress Form..there are so many sites/blogs to walk you through it. I used a combination of them!

    cool.what did you fill it with?i’m making one right now and i’m thinking of filling it completely with poly foam then take off the tape and shirt; that way it would be my exact size

    Fun! I have wanted to make my own dress form too but have not gotten around to it. This is wonderful and I can imagine will be a great tool for making fantastic fitting clothing. Good job!
