Description

I have been searching for a dress form forever, but those things are so expensive! So instead, I took an old mannequin that my mom found in the trash outside a retail store a long time ago and covered it in vintage patterns and tissue paper! It is a super easy DIY.

    Dress forms are a big investment I agree! This mannequin is awesome and gets the job done, especially for photos!

    This is so great! I think that many of us (me included) would be happy about a how-to make a sophisticated dress form like this!

    Really nice and you are lucky if you can find a manequin in your size and dimensions!
