Have you seen the tutorial about how to make your own dressmaker's dummy out of an old T-shirt and duct tape? It's really a cool idea, and something I've wanted to try ever since I read about it. Of course, the main reason I want to try it is that the idea of wrapping up . . . . uhmmm . . . . certain people in duct tape sounds like an entertaining and satisfying pastime!

I guess the only drawback to this type of dressform is it's not adjustable, but hey, perhaps that could be inspiration to maintain the same dimensions at all times, yes?

There's something S&M about that duck tape dress form.
