I needed a dress form to make some fitted projects I’ve been planning, so decided to go the route of other Burda members who have successfully made duct tape dress forms. Turned out pretty well! Just put on one of my boyfriend’s old shirts and roped in one of my best friends to do the duct taping. I used a hanger to give it definition at the top, and used a PVC pipe plus a microphone stand to make a base (which swivels). The whole thing cost me about $45! (the most expensive part was $25 for the microphone stand) And I think this is much more form fitting than a standard dress form. Here is the “how-to” I used: http://www.threadsmagazine.com/item/3631/duct-tape-dress-form-2
2 rolls of duct tape, hanger, PVC pipe, microphone stand, newspaper (lots) for stuffing
