Knit Knotes

Dressing Up….

A couple of months ago, one of my knit mates, Lyndsay mentioned she wanted to make a dressform made from duct tape.

This bright idea transpired to a DIY DressForm workshop for our knitterly friends.

Lyndsay did the research and we referenced two blogposts from Offbeat Bride and The Maria Antoinette as the basis of the DIY DressForm workshop.

So last month, on a lovely Sunday afternoon eight knitters gathered in The Constant Knitter’s studio armed with rolls and rolls of duct tape.

We paired up and started taping…


Once we had 3 layers of duct tape, cut ourselves out…



The next step was to stuff the dressform…


So here’s Madeleine the Mannequin, not quite finished as I’m looking for a proper stand for her….



Here she is…all dressed : )
