...Duct Tape Dress Dummy...
And tonight, we bring you...
The Denim Dress Dummy!
(New and improved! Except not!)
So, in case you haven't figured it out, I tried to use a pattern from Etsy to turn my Duct Tape Dummy into a nice, vaguely presentable dress dummy that I could call a piece of furniture.
I cut up the duct tape and made a muslin from it. It was terrible.
I drafted another. It was too small.
A third was too big.
I went with it anyway and transferred it to denim, and then made the Mister pin it down to size.
I seamed all the pin-lines. I tried it on. It was about an inch too tight, including the seam allowance, and didn't fit around my waist.
Whatever, I said, I've been working on this all week and I just want to finish it. I'll lose some weight or adjust my pinning.
I stuffed it and sewed it and measured my finished product.
The wait is 2.8 inches bigger than mine, and the breast stuffing popped up and to the sides.
I think at this point I might just by an adjustable one.
It does look quite creative though!
