Being a bigger size, I am getting into making my own clothes that are fitted a bit better. My boobs especially breast feeding are hard to size in bought clothes. So, I used the tutorial form http://www.threadsmagazine.com/item/3631/duct-tape-dress-form-2 to make my own mannequin and wrapped it with inspiration from fbk1977’s. I only used one roll of duct tape and stuffed it with dakron. I put a bra on it, then wrapped it in muslin gauze for tacking and used twisted strips of old sheets to bind it a bit better. My partner just happened to have a wooden stand he made for something else that was the exact height with an added suit hanger. I am sure this will work for me and am excited as I have a monumental feat to tackle: wedding dress-yikes!

Material Notes

wood post, suit hanger, dakron, muslin old cotton sheet
