Make a exact replica of your body!

I am new to sewing and wanted a dress form. Dress forms are expensive so I did an alternate plan.. a duct tape dress form.


Crafts

Instructions

  1. 1

    Put on a long old t-shirt and start wrapping yourself in duct tape. You will need someone to help you when it comes to the upper back. Make sure to do a few layers of tape.

    wrap..wrap..wrap....

  2. 2

    Once you are completely covered in duct tape have a friend cut it off of you from the middle of you back all the way down.

  3. 3

    tape up the cut area and start to fill with batting.

  4. How to make a mannequins. Duct Tape Dress Form - Step 4 4

    I had a stand home that worked perfectly so all I did was tape some cardboard onto the stand the fit the form on top

    ( The chest area was not big enough so I added a bra with padding to enhance it)




  5. How to make a mannequins. Duct Tape Dress Form - Step 5 5

    I then decided to cover the duct tape form in fabric so I used a pillow case and sewed up the sides.

  6. How to make a mannequins. Duct Tape Dress Form - Step 6 6

    You are now the proud owner of a dress form in your exact measurements!
