Save money and make the perfect body form for your next sewing project!

There's no doubt that a dress form is a useful piece of equipment for dress makers. Indeed, for some sewing projects a dress form or mannequin is an absolute must.

If this sounds a little daunting then don't worry! Help is at hand with these free tutorials and projects which have been shared by some clever and creative people. We have selected some fab photo tutorials to share with you, so you can clearly see every stage of the process. After all - you're not going to want to find yourself wrapped up in duct tape only to find that you've missed an important part of the process. You'll find our collection of dress form tutorials here - Make a DIY Dress Form.

All you require to make your own custom DIY dress form is some tape, a lot of time - and a very good friend. The latter being the most important.

Here is our selection of some of the very best DIY dress form projects and tutorials available - if you would like us to add some then just send us the link and we'll do the rest. Suggest A Page.
