For some dumb reason, I wanted to make a dress form to fit my awful, square, old-fat-granny body. I thought it would be a good idea. So, my best (the only one I would let tape my body) friend, Annie, and I went to the store for duct tape, stopped at Good Will and picked up a couple floor lamps, threw on one of DH's old shirts, and ripped tape like mad hatters, Annie went glam, and bought purple tape, and we taped,
and we taped, till our fingers were sore from ripping the tape
But, in the end, Lucy and Ethyl were born again. I'm too tired to glue all the fabric nice and neat like I originally planned, so I threw on a blouse and pinned fabric at the bottom, and viola
If you sew any clothing at all, I recommend this very highly, I am boxy and lumpy, so off-the-rack or out-of-a-pattern always has to be altered. I have become a wiz at elastic and darts over trhe years.
This is easy, fast, (about an hour and a half for each) and cheap. Now you're talking my language!
Hope all your mini-me's are fast and easy! tee hee
