Re: Paper-Tape Dress Form

in 1984 i made one of these with butcher's tape. I still have it but unfortunately it has not grown 10 sizes as I have. The tape was wet when it was removed from my body, but was thick enough that it kept it's shape. The kit came with a wide aluminum strip that was placed down the back so it was easy to cut it with a box cutter. After drying the length shrunk (as expected) so that was increased by an inch. It is still great after 30 years but makes me very sad. lol
