Clothilda First Run - SOLO



How do I amuse myself? Let me count the ways....

Here is Clothilda I. I did this entirely by myself. Let me tell you, it's not easy to duct-tape yourself! She's a bit lumpy and I have to get a base for the bottom of the torso. I need to make a neck, cut the sleeves and put darts in the shirt to fit, and put the bra inside! I have all the makings for the stand. If I can get someone to duct tape me better, there may be a Clothilda II someday. Right now she's stuffed with pillows and towels.

I think I really would rather do this one but I need help! My FN thinks I need SERIOUS help.

You never cease to impress me - how do you duct tape your own back? Looks great!

It's really hokey. I need to redo this. I want to do it in the paper tape and I need a taper! That one I did by putting on a dry cleaner bag. Taping under breast, around waist, hips, criss-cross the heart. Then I cut it off up the middle - again not easy. Retaped it, put on hanger, stuffed it with pillows, put a t-shirt on it, turned it over, and taped up the back. Why did I continue with all this?? I will get paper tape and then not have to worry about stuffing.

I read the paper tape dummies are much more accurate measurement-wise than duct-tape.

And in response to your comment- how do I come up with recipes for yoghurt gelato, ragu, etc.--it's easy. I slack on all my housework, sit around in my knickers, and think about food nonstop.
