Since you may have read in the last post that Rebecca wrapped herself in duct tape to make her dress form, I thought you might be interested in reading my friend's (Joy - from Joyful Expressions) post about her duct tape-dress-form-making-experience. I'm sure many of you have wondered what this is all about. I've never done it (I'm sure I'd be squished totally flat and I don't need any help in the Flat Department), but Joy's post...well, I just had a really good laugh!
Joyful Expressions My Christmas Present -- Michelina/Tina
A lot of my pictures of Michelina/Tina are on my other computer, so I can't let you laugh at those right now. I have wanted a dress form for years, and I even purchased one a few months ago from Hancock's. I bought the Medium size so I could unscrew it to be as fat as me. I unscrewed all the knobs, but no way on earth could I get that thing to look like me. It doesn't take into account shoulder slope, boob slope, high hip, sway back, high waist, prominent shoulder blades, round back, etc. I decided to research the "do it yourself" dress form on you tube. You make it by wrapping duct tape all around your body until you nearly suffocate, and then you cut it off -- well, your helper cuts it off. My husband had heard my friend, Phylly, and I talk about it -- although I had no idea he was actually listening.
