Use expanding foam from the hardware store to stuff the dress-form.That stuff hardens well enough you will never have to re-stuff it, but still ok with pins, etc. To lessen volume, first stuff with packing peanuts or crumpled newspaper. Be careful to keep the body doubles' shape the same while the foam expands. Working with small sections at a time should help.

    The nice thing about Pintrest is that when you click on the link it takes you to the original site of the pin. This link takes you to the step by step directions for this project. My only contribution to this was suggesting expanding foam.

How to make a dress form out of Duct Tape | Offbeat Bride This is one of the most detailed tutorials I've seen, and it has great pics.

The pattern is from www.getcreativesh... here is the project link "free pattern for a dressform pincusion" by Marie Browning I used a little "table flagpole" for it et voilà...

Duct-tape dress form #1 (above) uses ordinary duct-tape as both the body-casting material and the final form. Duct-tape dress form #2 (not shown)is a bit more difficult but produces a closer fit.

Make a dress form that is the exact replica of your body... with duct tape! Mad in Crafts..........This is the best one of all the tutorials out there about making a dress form from duct tape. The other ones that I have seen involved way too much mess and danger to your physical being. This is genius ...wear an extra long teeshirt tape it up then take it off.

DIY dress form that suits your body perfectly. Did this once in art school w/duct tape but this will work better!
