Nicely done! Does the course go into detail about how to make this or does it just focus on the fabric moulage?

Thank you very much! No the Course does not go into any detail of how to make the Dress-form, this was my own doing. But the Class does go into detail on how to make an exact replica of your own body measurements, hence the reason why I could of make this Dress-form.

Hi Leeking81, Your dress forms look great. Good job! I made a duck tape dress form of my body also and I need to make a stand for it. Your stand looks great. How did you make it and what did you use to stuff your dress form?

Hi Yevans2130, thank you for the comments, really do appreciate it. I used PVC pipes to make my stand, I bought. 2 1/2" PVC pipe, cut it to the height that I wanted my dress form to be. then cut it in two so at the hip area I could use a cross fitting to help keep the dress forms from sliding down the pole, I also use a coupler on the outside just below to dress form to help. However these were my first try, next time though I believe it would be best to use what I use at the bottom of the stand to hold the dress form up. At the bottom of the stand I use a fitting called a flange ( not sure if its the correct name) that has a square bottom , I screwed that unto a board. Hope this helps. I am not good at explaining things, hope the pictures of the dress forms stand gives you an idea of the parts I used.it is ALL PVC pipes, no glue was use , they fit tightly in each other, I can pull it apart for storage if need be. to stuff them, I use poly-fil batting. Hope This helps you.
