Dress Form

Project Description

What are you most proud of? My friend Bonnie came over and did it for me. Without her, I would not have this great tool. Also Craftsy offering a class on who to do this. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I let everything hang out so it was my actual figure. No sucking in the tummy.

What you will need

  • Duct Tape
  • Old Tee Shirt
  • Cardboard and lots of plastic bags.

Q&A with karenanddolly

patikake asked:
This does not tell you how you made the mold...what are the instructions
karenanddolly answered:
That was another Craftsy Class called Curvy Knitshttp://www.craftsy.com/class/Curvy-Knits-Plus-Size-Knitting/33. Marly Bird is another wonderful teacher.
WinterLady asked:
This is really helpful! I really like it ! What a great idea... I made my own dress form for sewing and never considered it for fitting knits... I want to take this class. If you are looking for how to make your dress form you may check out Threads Magazine website. I posted some resources here if you are interested https://lulusatelier.wordpress.com/2012/11/14/create-a-dress-form/

Just saw your video and I like your dress form even better. I am finding I use mine all the time and glad I have one.
