Intro: How to Make a Dress Form

This is a PowerPoint presentation I made to demonstrate how to make a dress form.  I, then, converted it to a video using a trial version of Power Video Maker.  I uploaded the video to You Tube.  I hope you enjoy this project.

    I"m sure this is helpful, but it's difficult to watch. I keep having to pause it to read the screen when lots of text comes up, and the random swirling graphics are annoying..

    This looks great. I think it might be even more helpful as a step-by-step Instructable with all of the great pictures you've taken and text written up.

    I've never received anything that says whether this made it into the contest...I Made It"
    Should I take my Power Point Presentation and submit it as photographs?

    Thank you,
    Joan

    Thank you. It's my first submission. Should I re do the entry for the contest? Is that possible?

    Have you looked at the hundreds of sewing related Instructables and those for making dress forms? They should give you a good idea of your competition. My preference is to be able to read something and go back to it when there is something I don't understand. Your original PowerPoint presentation seems to fit the print type of Instructables format. Your submission is more like the 'giannyl' video type format.

    Thank you. Being new to this, I am taking all suggestions. I will submit the individual jpgs as a step-by-step, if you think that's what I should do.
    I don't understand what "giannyl" means. I'm a little slow here.

    I clicked on your link, but didn't see any there. I'll look them up tomorrow, by searching the instructables.

    Thank you for helping me.

    I love Threads, too. It's a great magazine. There are so many fun things to sew, there's not enough time to sew them all!! But, we should keep trying. :)

    My wife has done this when sewing for herself and for others. She did not use foam to stuff the form, but used batting. It is a great way to get garments that do fit, especially if the wearer has a figure irregularity of any kind. My wife first saw the idea for this in a Threads Magazine.
