I totally need a dress form, not because I sew or make clothing, but for my vintage shop! I have aprons, coverall aprons, and dresses that I’ve posted in my shop that could have way better photos with a better chance of selling if they were displayed on a dress form rather than just a hanger or laid out on a table. But dress forms… they’re so expensive! And with my kind of budget, they’re not only expensive, they’re outrageous!
I found this tutorial on Etsy’s Upcyclers Team’s website and definitely wanted to share it with as many fellow artists or vintage entrepreneurs as I could. I bookmarked the above blog post on my desktop. I will totally be using it and the links in it to make a dress form in the near future.
