Duct Tape Dress Form
I just found this great idea for a dress form on the Mary Jane Farm Recipes-Patterns link page.

You use an old t-shirt and duct tape to create a dress dummy of yourself (with help from a friend--OR this could be a great project for a wife and husband--ha).

I thought I would post this here for those folks who might like to make one for themselves.

After you get to this page, do a search for "Duct Tape Dress Form"!

Yeah, I have a Threads magazine that's years (maybe a decade or more) old, showing how to make one. It's great for sewing/designing, especially since you really do get it to fit exactly to the person's curves.. or non-curves!
