What materials did you use? Paper tape and old T-shirt.

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.

I had no idea I was getting so much by investing in your class, Plus Sized Sewing and Design! You are a very easy to follow teacher AND we learn (and see!) how to make a dress form of ourselves! Yea! That should be in the class description, for sure! I have been trying to get someone to help me make one of these for years ... and now when I do I have a how to do it video to show. Thanks

I have no one to help me tape up. Is it possible to do it yourself? I suppose not.

yes it can be done by your self. just lay the shirt out and tape the back firstthen you can add more tape and tighten it up to fit snug,

This is awesome. I am also very impressed that you have stayed the same size...a feat I have not mastered.

I live in UK - I don't have anyone to help me wit this either - perhaps we could start a buddy system with people in our area willing to help.
