The duct tape dress form is looking pretty good. I have to reshape one arm a little and I may have a few more soft areas to fill with the expanding foam insulation. Right now, it’s in the LR and it’s upside down on it’s stand so we could add foam in the hip area and draft a template for the plywood base. This has turned out so well that I’m thinking I will by the My Twin kit and do a pants form eventually.
I’m working on a pair of pants for the older DD. This is the first pants I’ve made since she was a baby! I’m using Simplicity 4135 (threads collection). I’m doing a practice pair in muslin and right now I’m in the process of figuring out all the stuff about the front yoke/pocket section. It looks like the waist might be a little higher than she wanted, but hopefully I can change that.
I wish that pattern companies would make patterns on CD or DVD so you could actually see and hear the construction and you could pause and zoom in on critical areas of a picture. Is there anyone who does that?
