I cannot find ready made patterns for my daughter that either one of us like, so I'm looking for a dress form for draping. Any suggestions? We want to make semi-formal performance wear. Something that will look beautiful while seated in front of a Steinway 7' grand piano. Dress form suggestion or pattern suggestion would be appreciated.
I visit Youtube *Threadbanger* videos. They shown how to make a body form with your own body out of duct tape not sure that's what you are looking for but is a thought.

I actually have a hub about these, and probably will do another more specific one. The reason is that while I was researching I found out a good way to make your own (the duct tape idea) and it seems more popular with readers then buying an expensive one
they make it look very easy I say try wmart or jo annes I canged my mind about the duct tape
I always wanted to make a duct dape one, but you doing so requires two people.
I had a friend ask me to "tape" her so she could make her own dress form, and it was really easy. The more care you take in applying the tape, the better the form will look.
Wow, I'm going to check this out too, the duct tape idea. I know when I have tryed to find a dress form, they are a little spendy. If you know of someone who has one, maybe they would let you borrow it? Have fun, I'm sure the dress will be fabulous!
I used to have a wire form that you plugged in and it would soften, then you'd put it on, mold it to your body and unplug it. The form would harden to fit your shape exactly. I don't have it anymore and can't seem to find it being sold anymore. That's not much help for you in the moment but perhaps someone knows where one like that still exists??
