I mad This dress form using duct tape. I used one of my husbands old t-shirts and sewed it to make it more form fitting, this was my base. My sister wrapped me, which was harder than I thought it would be. After she cut me out of it I had to use extra tape to cinch the waist which came out too wide and I had to put extra stuffing in the bust which came out to small!!! I also had to tape down the stomach which bubbled up, I know i have a bit of a mommy pouch after 4 children, but not that bad!!! So after all the taping and struggling I got it as close to the correct measurements as possible. I’m very excited to see all the new possibilities that come with a dress form!!! I used cheap walmart pillows which I ripped open, and used the stuffing. The stand is a hanger, a pvc pipe and a christmas tree stand.
