Did You Say “Jezebel”?

Well, yeah, I did.  The Internet’s a strange place.

Still AWOL over here, I’m afraid.  Various projects have left our house a disaster (and will continue to do so for another couple of weeks), and I’ve spent a week in New York City in the meantime (can you blame me??).  But I’m back just for this post because the website Jezebel (weirdly!) has what looks like a great tutorial on making a dress form.

Today’s post is only part one, with part two promised for next week.  Except for the time involved, this looks surprisingly “doable”, and should result in a dummy that replicates your shape better than anything you could reasonably buy (or make via other methods), and with what I hope is a sturdy foam core.  I’m seriously tempted to try it, just as soon as I have fifteen hours to myself.  Oh, and a house again.

    The website it origins from might be a little phony, but this project does sound very interesting and promises good success. I´ve read the first part of the how-to-do and am looking forward to the second!

      Hi, prachtstueckwerk! Yes, Jezebel can probably be described as “a little phony”! Maybe we’d say “a little arch” over hear on this side of the pond, but you’ve got it! You can imagine how surprised I was to see an article about making a dummy on that site . . . Link to part 2 coming up.
