Another reason for wanting a dress form is that I really want to learn draping. Since there are gaps between the panels once I adjusted it, I covered it with an old band t-shirt which I fitted with pins. It looks like it should work pretty well, I just have to work up the courage to do some free-form designs.
I started my first project of the new year tonight. I may have only gotten as far as cutting out the pattern, but hopefully soon it will be a dress that I can wear to work. If I don't have to pick up any more supplies, the dress will only have cost about $30. Compared to the price tags on dresses at my favorite stores, its definitely a bargain!
