This is my first dress form that I made by myself using the "sloper" method. It has been sitting for quite a while and could use some work but it has suited me well so far. I bought an old vintage "Uniquely You" dress form on Craigslist, made myself a very tight sloper fitted on my own body, then I dressed the form with it and stuffed it to fill it out until the measurements matched. It isn't a perfect replica of my body but I like that it's soft and easy to pin into, and with some neater updates, I think it will look quite nice.
