My very own dressform. Exactly like me, except made of paper, and without limbs or a head, but for a fraction of the cost of a proper dressform!
It took a few hours to make, but I’m really pleased how she turned out. I had to weigh her down a little in her behind as she had a tendency to topple, and I’ve put a hanger in her for easy wardrobe storage. I may paint her at a later stage, and give her a bit of a varnish to make sure she lasts!
An old t-shirt, a few rolls of gummed paper packing tape, a hanger, a bag of plastic beans – the sort used to weigh down teddies (she was a little top heavy), and a very close friend.
