That is a great idea!. I used stiffy in a class where we made origami type wallets out of fabric. It is interesting stuff.

I've been wanting to make a paper-tape form for years now but when you first posted photos of Fleur I knew that I ought to do it your way instead. I don't have the same lovely proportions so the more decorative I can make my form, the better! I need to get a sloper made, too - another thing on my to-do list - I assume you'd advise doing that before looking at building the form?

If I remember correctly I think Don McCunn has some info on making a dressform from a sloper in his book. Thanks for sharing!
Congratulations, ladies! I'll be sending you email shortly (might already have been done) so we can get you your Stiffy! (That sounds bad, I know.) Or if for some reason, my email never got to you, please email me instead - lier.koh(at)gmail(dot)com
