Duck Tape Dress Form Get-Together -- East Tennessee OR??

A former member
Post #: 1
I have been trying to make a duck tape dress form, but it is very difficult to do by myself.

Who else is interested in making a dress form?

What I'm thinking is that 4 to 6 would make a good number for a get-together, we all bring a snack like thing, maybe some music or dvd and our own supplies.

Supply list:
Duck tape (original strength roll, 55 yds for about $5 from Walmart)
One roll works to make a basic dress form for me when I was size 14; Two should be good for up to a 20; add more for optional leg form parts or arm parts

Stuffing - a few old fiber fill pillows

An old 'sacrificial' turtle neck and knit leggings or thin fabric shorts or pants. These will be the basis for the dress form and become part of the finished item.

Wooden suit hanger for hanging finished dress form

OPTIONAL a roll of fun colored duck tape to fancy up finished dress form.

Sending you a shout out, I've heard this idea really works but you do need others to work with you on the project. . (Not geographically near you.)
Good luck find companions. :)
