Good Gaffer Tape Dress Form Tutorial link

If anyone is interested in making their own dress form, DH and I made "mine" last week following this tutorial.

I used one whole 50m roll and about a half of a second. I've then filled it with newspaper but I may refill later with expanding plumbers foam (will probably need 4-5 cans though)

Anyway it is now sitting on my table and is great! Helps with fitting tops, where previously I had to either pin myself or have DH stick pins into me all the while complaining!

Did take about 2 hours to do though!

I've been meaning to make one for ages, really should get round to it!

the thing with expanding foam is it does just expand everywhere and if your form is not robust (how many layers of tape did you build up?) it will deform your shape.

If I did it again I wouldn't try to fill the whole shape but just build up an inner wall of foam against the gaffer tape iyswim.
