Very interesting adjustments. Love the dress form - very professional!

Could you give a little more information about the Duct Tape Dress form? I've seen some different directions to make one and was wondering which you used. I also like that yours has arms and a cover of some kind. I've never worked with a dress form but feel that to get a good fit since I don't have a sewing buddy, it would be very helpful.

Very, Very Nice!!! I too agree that your dress form is very nice and would truly like to know what instructions you used to make the Duct Tape Dress form. Again, Job Well Done.

Would you add arms to your Duct Tape dress form if you were to make one again? I made one that has arms to about the length of a t-shirt sleeve and I just hate them. To make one again, I'd stop at the point of shoulder. It would be so much easier to remove test garments. It makes me think this is why most professional dress forms omit arms.
