Padding Your Dress Form

Your dress form, most likely, will not be a perfect copy of you, and so you will have to “pad” your dress form.   To pad your dress form, you can use whatever you have lying around the house.  I am using an old bra and a package of quilters batting along with some old shoulder pads.  But I have also previously used something as simple as dish towels.   It’s okay to get creative!  It also helps to have a cover, so you can hide that “hot mess” underneath, but either way it will all work out in the end.   Take note, even after you have padded your dress form, there still may be slight variations when you compare it with your actually body.  Don’t worry, clothing is much more forgiving that you may realize.  Just do your best!
