Crafting in Wonderland: I've got a double!

I was off from work today and decided to finally make a duct tape double of myself.  I've been wanting a dress form for a while, but shipping a dress form to Guam would be so expensive.  After seeing all the great DIY dress form tutorials on You Tube, I decided this would be the next best thing.  So I enlisted the help of Allan. He did a really good job and I managed to not pass out.  She isn't an exact double, but she fits my t-shirts okay so I can't complain.

I could've really used that double a couple weeks ago when I was making this top.  Instead I was forced to try it on, take it off, sew adjustments, try it on, take it off, sew adjustments . . .   Oh well.


  1. 'a duct tape double of myself!'
    What a great idea Drea? I think theres a story in that alone?!

  2. aww...i like the heart! - did you name her?

  3. :P I can't think of a name! I do want to name her, but I still haven't even named my sewing machine. lol

  4. Good job! I've been thinking of making a dressform too. I doubt I'll ever get to it though, I seem to be up to my eyeballs in "to-do"....


Thanks for taking the time to view my blog! Comments and questions are welcome. :P
