Plus-Size Pattern Fitting & Design »
Type of item: Clothing
Paper tape and old T-shirt.
What was your inspiration?
This is the paper tape dress form that my late husband made of me, oh, it could be almost 20 years ago. It lives in my garage and has not been affected by the heat and humidity. The stomach has collapsed so is shoved a shoe box up inside and that has popped it back in place.
What are you most proud of?
My measurements are still about the same, and I've used this form all these years. I have it popped over the top of my industrial dress form.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Try to wet only the glue side of the tape with a wet sponge, so it takes relatively less drying time.
