Description

Dun dun da!

Here she is, my homemade dress form. Josh wrapped me in duct tape, made me suffer a little before he cut the form off, and I found a pole for it today. Now all it needs is a base to stand on. It’s not perfect, but the measurements are pretty damn close! The only thing that’s off is the waist measurement, because I was puffing my stomach out during the wrapping process. I was afraid of being wrapped too tight.

Material Notes

Duct tape, stuffing/old towels/random scraps, pole!
