Now I can remove it from the dress form and continue working on my garment. What do you think of this technique? Is it something you’ve done before or would like to try? 🏹 #teaganjacobs ✨ Mannequin is gifted from @royaldressform Sewing Tutorials, Molde, Couture, Design, Cosplay, Dressmaking, Instagram, Sewing Clothes, Dress Form
