Duct Tape Dress Form
The new corset is done, so I decided to make a dress form specifically for my corsetted shape. This is my first experience with this method and the pictures are beyond unflattering, downright ugly. So far we have only gotten the form taped and cut off. What a process. Hot, hard to breathe but some right nice bounding time with the hubby. Sorry, bad pun.
Here it is mid-tape.
And fully taped.
And finally cut off, but not stuffed.
I'll post more as the project progresses; I need to tape up the back, stuff it, mount it on a stand and cover it with some knit.
