So after the taping is done there’s still work to do. I’ve decided to hang my double instead of putting it on a pole and stand. I wore a long sleeved turtleneck and sewed a length of cotton knit around the bottom to cover my backside. It actually went almost to my knees and came in quite handy.
We cut our dummies in a zig zag up the back. I opened mine and sprayed an adhesive in the inside of the bust and pressed in an old underwire bra.
I had an old pillow so I separated it and hung it over the hanger to take up the middle of the space.
To retain the shape at the bottom of the dress form and to give you something to anchor the pole to if you are putting dress form on a stand, measure around bottom of dress form and around your legs at the same place. The circumference should be close to equal. Measure the with of this oval formed by your legs and the depth so you can draw this on 1 1/2″ insulation board.
