Stand by your mannequin

…or body form as they’re also known. I was lucky enough to receive my own professional dressmakers mannequin for my birthday this year, but if you were not as fortunate or decided to use your birthday wishes to receive ready-made clothes or a flying unicorn instead, here is a very handy YouTube video on how to make your own body form using only an old t-shirt, masking tape, and whoever was silly enough to stick around after you got that crafty look in your eye.
