This past weekend I hosted a Duct Tape Dress Form Party (where we made duct tape dress forms) in my mother’s garden. She has a giant and beautiful garden that I like being in, so that is where I decided we should gather. My mother has also made duct tape dress forms before so I thought we could use her for help.
I realized the night before that ripping duct tape was not going to work for me so I didn’t do much helping, but I think the day was successful. We all got our dress forms made by working in pairs and then switching the torturee. I am pleased with mine (my mom taped me) and hope to stuff it this weekend.
I threatened everyone at the party that their pics would be on the blog. So here they are:
Lisa showing her strength. (I think she was trying to scare me? and I know she was threatening to beat me up.)
Emily wrapping Wanda (This will be the last time Wanda’s arm goes that high for awhile, the duct tape is restricting.)
Jeannie in that hat and Lisa contemplating exactly where the next piece of tape should go.
Wanda getting ready with more tape for Emily.
Me looking like a goon.
You don’t realize how shallow you have been breathing until you cut the thing off. I can’t imagine what it must have been like to wear a corset daily.
Here they all are in a row.
I am very very excited about the prospect of having a perfectly me sized dress form to try my sweaters on. It will also be great for taking pictures of my knitting.
I do need a name for my dress form. Suggestions?
