Well, dang! I was hoping it would fit perfectly! But you sound like you're an expert seamstress, so perhaps you can get a good fit on it.

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.

My son's wedding was last night, and I finally had the chance to wear the dress! These were taken by family members (snapshots). We'll have to wait a while longer for the professional photographer's photographs. But I thought you all might be interesting in seeing how it looks when worn.



here, with my oldest son, who was an usher at his brother's (my middle son's) wedding.



Dancing with the groom, my middle son... (such a bad picture, I'm so sorry about that!)



and here, with my youngest grandson. (dim room, sorry about the lighting.)
