What materials did you use? My twin dressform made out of expanding foam, painted black to seal it. I then pinned on 1/4" green twill tape to mark my seamlines for draping.

Thank you! I don't mind having her hanging out in my studio. Thanks to your course she now keeps me fired up with inspiration.
