DIY Duct Tape Mannequin | Under $20 Dress Form!

I get a lot of comments from my viewers asking me where to get an inexpensive dress form so today I’m going to demonstrate how you can make your own out of duct tape for under $20! This is how I started in high school and used mine for a couple years until my dad gifted me with my very first dress form. The duct tape form has its cons, but if you’re like me you’ll make it work! 🙂

2-3 Rolls of good quality duct tape
Lamp Stand (I had at home, you can probably thrift something for very cheap!)
Newspaper/scrap fabric
Shoulder pads/sticky boobs (optional)
1-2 people to help you

This is the professional dress form I use:
