thank you for the reply Mochi Mochi!
I picked up a couple rolls of duck tape, both are 55 yards, so I am hoping that is enough. Then a pretty purple deco duck tape for the outside! My husband is making me the stand and is going to tape me up! I will post a pic when it is all finished! :)
I think making one will be fun! :) plus it is custom.
so I am considering purchasing a new dress form off of amazon for like 50.00 and it has great reviews; as i have been unable to find one locally that is priced at what I want to spend. I won't be using it much, so I don't really want to waste money on it.
But I have also been watching tons of the duct tape dress form tutorials.
Has anyone ever made your own dress form? If so, what kind did you make?
What was the final cost? It is seeming like it will not be that much less than buying one after buying the duct tape and filling.
But on the plus side, it would fit my form exactly and be fun to make.
So, input? thanks ladies!
ok so my machine keeps doing this annoying thing where the thread spool or bobbin, maybe it is both, seem to slip....like jerk when I am sewing. The thread bunches in wads underneath the fabric but the top stitch is fine.
I think it is a tension issue, which I always have problems with the tension dial. I haven't figured out yet how to know what setting I should adjust it to for let's say a straight stitch vs a zig zag stitch.
Anywho! any help would be appreciated! it is driving me bonkers having to constantly rip out messed up stitches and re-thread and re-do everything to start over and it does it again.
