I spent part of the weekend making a “My Twin Dressform” with help from a dear friend. (No, that’s not us below!) Tackling this project meant I had to stand for an hour in a plastic bag while my friend wrapped me in wet plaster bandages. Once the bandages hardened, she cut the plaster cast off of me, and I was left with two halves, which I sewed together today. Then I had to cover the seams, arm holes, and neck hole with more plaster bandages.
After the cast is completely dry, the next step is to fill the dress form with a liquid mixture that turns into a dense foam as it hardens. Once the foam is complete dry, it’s time to peel off the plaster and shave off the remaining bandages. The last steps are to sew a casing on top of the dress form and glue it to a base. Wish me luck!
