I would like to make my dress form bigger but only on the lowerfront . Getting older we seem to get smaller buttock and bigger belly. Some ideas how to do it? Taping it over a T-shirt with quilt batting maybe? I wonīt use the tape direct on the form. The form is set to maximum now, it canīt be set wider...

I used an old one piece bathing suit. I cut the crotch, slipped it over the dressform and stuffed it with the insides of an old pillow until it matched my measurements and shape.

You need to have some sort of cover on your dress form. A tight tank or cami will work. Then place batting over the belly area and wrap muslin or batting around that and then put the cami over that to hold it all down.

Yeah, and all those parts are like the hanging gardens of Babylon Its like if you cut me in half from side to side, by backside is trim, and my frontside is large and fallen I dont have a dressform, so I ONLY have to see this shape when I look in a mirror...

lovely words, bazoombas, badonkadonk. Not to find in my vocabulary, but I think to know the place on our body
Tennis and ironing are my secrets. Having a small ironing business at home, I sometimes work 6 hours a day, using my arms and upper body frequently. And tennis of course works for my arms.
