InstructionsI ordered the instruction manual from mytwindressforms.com then collected the supplies myself. Cost of supplies was around $100. Please see my blog for further details http://sewnotwork.wordpress.com/
Type of item: Functional
Plaster bandages, polyurethane foam, bandage scissors, Johnson Paste Wax, Poly-ease 2300, pins, rib knit, ribbon, IV stand
What was your inspiration?
I was seeing all the beautiful outfits people were making and I was getting tired of pinning to myself in the mirror. Wanted a dress form that was my body double and not an average woman dress form. I'm petite and I couldn't find one with the right proportions.
What are you most proud of?
So excited that I was able to find an IV pole at a thrift shop so my husband made my stand adjustable! I also didn't have to pay $800+ for a custom form.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This is not for the faint of heart. A lot of planning and prep ahead of time. I had my heart set on a custom form and I didn't want a duct tape form that would make my pins sticky. The foam is pinnable. It's great! Find someone who is willing to help you.
