I’ve read a lot in this forum about making your own dress form and we know that Threads Magazine has published articles on this subject, as well as, (I think) Sew News just last month. But, what I want to know now is, is there anyone out there that has a dress form and they were dissatisfied with it (such as the bust point was too high or too low; or, the tummy or the behind on it was too flat) and they padded it to make it more like them?
If this has been the case I would like to hear about how you went about padding your commercial dress form to get it more like you, or as close to your measurements as possible. What I would especially like to know is: what you used to pad the dressform and hold it in place, what part of the body did you start with, and how did you raise or lower the bust point?
Here’s to looking forward to hearing about your experiences, as well as, receiving your advice on the steps associated with such a such a project. WandaJ
