Clone Yourself into a Dress Form

One of the hardest parts of sewing is making sure patterns fit to your body shape. Here’s an article online from Threads Magazine that shows four quick, easy, and cheap ways to make your own dress form. “With a few pins, some muslin, and 20 minutes, you can explore more pattern tweaks (and learn more about fitting) on a custom form than you could in hours of flat-pattern investigation on paper.” These DIY dress forms can be made out of duct tape (there are 2 ways!), molded paper-mache, or paper-tape.

    You can do the same hing wih the brown parcel tape that nneds to be wetted to make it stick. Cut though once it is dry – this is fairly quick. Needs about 6 layers applied crosswise in different directions for each layer.

    I wonder if Red Green gave them the idea since it uses duct tape.
