I’m with dummy

Melissa and I have been working on our duct tape dress forms for the last couple of weekends. I finally finished mine today!

It’s not perfect, but I think it will be useful, and it seems to have the correct measurements. It’s kind of hard to tell the back from the front, since I don’t really have the frontal protrusions that most women have!
Here’s the back side:

Ha ha ha, it’s just a barrel of fun over here!

    That dress form is great! I have been coveting my own dress form since getting addicted to Project Runway and deciding that I want to design all of my own clothes. I’ll have to make a duct tape form one of these days!

    I’m laughing WITH you, not AT you; loving the pink. Coveting a dress form except I couldn’t stand to really SEE my form. I prefer to have a positive self image! xox Kay

    Very cute – I, also, sadly lack what makes a front a front, and not a back…(ps – love the cardigan!)

    Okay, which one of you is Lucy and which one Ethel?

    how did you do that without suffocating!? I once tried to do this and we got halfway through the duct tape bit and I thought I was going to lose it – being all confined like that i could hardly breathe. what did you stuff it with? Is it on a stand? do tell us more!

  12. melissa says:

    That looks great! Maybe I’ll be motivated to actually finish mine now.

  13. amy k. says:

    Oops, I meat “you” rock…

    Nice dress form – how do you make one? For you Bay Area peeps, just noticed today that dress forms are on sale at April Cornell goin-out-of-biz sale on 4th St. in Berkeley. Child sizes, too. Sale over Monday. Didn’t notice any particular “frontal protrusion” sizes, though.

  17. Rose says:

    Wow!!! I’ve wanted to make one of these for a long time. They are so cool. I got the instructions and have enlisted the DH to help, but he thinks I’m crazy.

  18. Rachael says:

    Hot, hot. I want one. Maybe then I wouldn’t be surprised every time I try a sweater on for the first time….

  19. Laura says:

    Very very cool. Now I need to skip up to the next post and see if you told where to find the instructions to make one! Is it possible to make custom frontal protrusions?!? heh

    I remember seeing how to make one those duct tape forms in I think Threads, and it’s fun to see how yours turned out.
