Pimp My Dress Form: The 'She's got Legs' remix

Onda is still camera shy.
Everyone recalls my journey with Onda.




She's got legs! Rather, wheels. Yes, Ive put Onda on stilts so to speak, and now she's my height! My friend Craig made the 'shelf' for her as part of the trade for tailoring his suit.



I designed it to be put on one of those wheelie cart things for plants ($6 at my local discount store). I soaked some folded linen in Elmer's and glued her to the base. I'm wrapping her bottom in the bubble wrap and covering that with white jersey so she'll look smoothish and presentable.


More to come!

  3. What a cool idea! Mind if I steal it? lol Also like the stilt thing, as my dressform always seems to slide down. I also have a second form for my girlfriend, so may do that one also. You are so smart!
