What advice would you give someone starting this project? DO THIS! Sign up for the class, even if it is just to learn how to make your own Mannequin! If you knit, crochet, or sew for yourself this is a VERY economical way to get a dress form for yourself to use to accurately fit your projects to yourself. This project took my husband and I about 90 minutes to complete. It was time just for me and him and we both enjoyed it.

Good on you. I've been finishing off other projects and am just about to start on my mannequin..... hope it turns out as good.

This looks like one of the best things so far I've learned on Craftsy! SO much easier to see how the item will look on me when I can see it NOT in a mirror!
