To quote a favorite blog...

What are we going to make today? Actually, this is what I plan on making tomorrow evening after work...

A dress form! I've wanted one of these for ages...I've posted on cheapcycle, freecycle, combed yardsale ads, and asked everyone I know...the closest I've come to locating an inexpensive (or free) dressform was when a co-worker said she used to have one, but gave it to her husband and brother in law for target practice. Tragic. She said it ended up going to the dump.

I've read several on-line "how-to's" and have decided that this is a do-able project, provided I have the co-operation of my daughter. She's agreed to be the 'crash-test dummy' for an evening of being wrapped in duct tape. I'm going to take lots of pictures, so I'll post a step-by-step tutorial. I can't wait!

I can't wait to see the final result! What a patient daughter you have willing to be covered in duct tape!

I'm posting again at Shocking Pink Thread. Thanks for stopping by!

I've read about the duct-tape dressform. Now and then I think about asking my sister to help me do this. You're inspiring me to consider scheduling it soon. I look forward to reading about your dressform adventure.
