This is the toughest part: I’m almost done, I just have to pad it out a few more layers. This of course, is the frustrating part. What’s frustrating about it? Well, the fact that I have to pad it out this much for one. Ah well, Let me show you some pictures of where it stands. Even with the Funky Padding we built for the form, the bust needed more padding. As Phyllis mentioned in her post, simply adding more fusible batting doesn’t cut it. I wanted to build out volume more realistically, so I created good old-fashioned bust pads from some leftover bouclé.
Now the upper part of the Dress Form Double is pretty much finished. I added more padding to the waist (sigh…) and hips. I don’t need to pad the hips too much, but I need to add some curvature (or lumps, as I call them) in a couple of areas. I am hoping to do that on my lunch hour today and put this baby to bed. Of course, I was not aided by the fact that my building is having an electrical problem, and the overhead lights don’t work in part of it. My landlady hopes to have the electrician out to fix it today.
Once I have the entire thing done, I’ll post a full review so you have it all in one place.
