Something to Do While It’s Quiet

I just wanted to warn you that it’s going to be a little quiet here for the next month or so.  I’m taking a little break from updating this ...

Duct Tape Does it All

How to describe this one?  So sometimes when I sew dresses or tops it does get difficult to make sure they fit right around that area.  That’s where a dress form or dummy comes in, or it would if I could a afford one.  Enter the duct tape.  Yep, I’ve seen tons of tutorials over the web about making a custom one using duct tape (Here’s a good one).  So with the help of about three rolls of tape and my sister (who had to be bribed), this is what I got.  It’s not very tall (neither am I) and the proportions are weird (ditto for me too), but I think it will work.  Now hopefully I won’t have anymore problems with bodice patterns that are designed for “curvier” woman.
Here’s the updated list:
  • Dummy
  • Mittens
  • Wildlife
  • Baby bear
  • Ornaments
  • Gift bags
  • Bows
  • Doll makeover
  • Bags
  • Collars
  • Barbie clothes
  • Doll clothes
  • Animals
  • Sleeping bags
One down, thirteen to go.  The next couple of projects should be up by Wednesday.
