Making your own dress form is very beneficial, especially for those who love to sew and make their own clothes. It makes pattern drafting, draping and fitting a lot easier because you’re working with a pinnable body double of your own figure!

Materials that were used to create the molds:
– For the torso
o Plaster bandages
o Wrapping plastic
o Scissors
o Bucket of water
o Needle and thread

– For the limbs
o (duct) tape
o Tights/pantyhose
o Scissors

Used materials to create the stand:
PVC pipes and fittings
