Re: Paper-Tape Dress Form

I think, I like this method better than the duct tape version. It seems that the brown tape is more malleable to mold around our curves and lighter weight than the duct tape. I remember doing this in a sewing group in Las Vegas with duct tape and one of the girls got really overheated. We had to place cool wash cloths on her and fan her off to cool her down, so she would not pass out. I believe this method is much safer, because of my previous experience with the duct tape.
