Spring Fling Body Double

Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Clone Yourself Dress Form Link to website or photo www.threadsmagazine.com/item/3659/clone-yourself-a-fitting-assistant/page/all What are you most proud of? I am most proud of the fact that the only thing I actually had to PURCHASE in order to make this was the wheelbarrow handle! We had everything else just lying around ready to be re-used! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Search You Tube for other do it yourself dress forms, and see the different takes on them. I'm a plus size woman, so it was important for me to get the 'girls' supported well. I also did a bit of a neck on mine, and small portion of my upper arms - because I love accurate sleeves!!!

What you will need

  • For the body form: An old t-shirt that I didn't mind cutting up
  • duct tape
  • a scrap of fabric (for the neck). LOTS of old newspaper For the stand: A heavy duty hanger
  • a wheelbarrow post
  • two strips of small brackets (to secure the hanger to the top of the wheelbarrow handle)
  • screws
  • scrap wood for the base
