You had a little sneak peak last week: I have made a dressform to my own measurements. It was done in a group of 4 ladies and we helped eachother with the process of making a copy of your body. A few impressions of the construction.
First I was wrapped in adhesive paper. This was cut at the back and glued together again. Then it was made more sturdy by adding more adhesive paper on the inside.
After drying it was coated with a first layer of fiberfill. The outer layer is a stretch velours
The result after adding the bottom and putting it on a stand. On top is a pincushion. I’m convinced it will help me with fitting issues. It was pretty confrontating to see your own body copied with all its particulars, but it’s just the way I am, nothing to do about that.
