This is my attempt to make a dress form using plaster and PU-foam. I first read about this method from joost52 (http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/diy-dress-form-for-men). It is a very well documented tutorial.

    Good job! I made one, too. Very similar. I really like mine. Very helpful with my sewing. It’s on my blog www.sewnotwork.wordpress.com

      Yes, I’ve already seen yours when I was planning to make mine. I look up for other dress forms for inspiration. :)

      Thank you! It is a big project. It took me two weeks, because I was lazy. I also get a lot of help from my husband, but I think anyone can do it!
