A Better 3-D You

I wanted to pad my dress form to mimic my unique curves so that I could more accurately fit a snug muslin. I dressed the form in one of my well-fitting bras and used scraps of polyester batting to fill the cups. To create hips, I cut off the top of an old pair of tights, pulled it onto the form's hips, and padded in the same way. This enabled me to customize my form quickly so that it more closely resembles my nonstandard proportions.
