The course was this weekend and typically, we had quite the dumping of snow, so I was a little late to class (don't you just hate it when that happens?). Nonetheless, attend I did, and look who came home with me? Ladies and gents, I would like to introduce you to Dolly - isn't she something? If you are in/around Calgary and want to take the course, I can thoroughly recommend it, and the tutor, Michelle is lovely. Hopefully she will now put on more courses for us - boy, we were very enthusiastic!
I have to say that I think she is great. It is really weird to see what others see of me (well OK, usually when other people see me I have clothes on, but you get my drift!!) I can really see my flat butt, and tummy bulge as well as the lack of waist definition and rounded upper back - but we are all about enhancing our attributes and disguising our flaws, right? Oh, and it looks as though my partner may have cut me a little short on me left shoulder, so I will fix that with the next layer (see below).
I still need to put another 'layer' on her - she has to dry out for a couple of days, and then once she has been completed, she is going to be one very busy lady. I have a few plans for here - she will have a coating of spray foam on the inside to give her more stability, and I will also have her on a stand so that I can hang dresses from her. I am not sure whether I will cover her in a stretch jersey and add bust, waist (if I can find it!), hip CB & CF (etc) lines, or finish off with some decoupage. I rather like these two for inspiration:
I have already had her model a shirt that I made for myself that has an FBA, swayback and rounded neck adjustment, and it fits really well - which is confirmation that she is a good replicant (I love Bladerunner)! As Mr. SDSC says - I can now see what he sees, when I am trying on garments.
Hmmm! I think I need to reconsider the angle at which I am taking these photos - I look like a linebacker here :)
If you would like to make one yourself, there are some great instructions here,
