Recovering a Vintage Dress Form
I then wrapped the batting around the mannequin pulling it firmly around the back and secured it with pins, ready for sewing. I pinched the excess wadding at the top of the shoulders, folded it towards the back and pinned in place temporarily.
Once the wadding was in place, there was a little of the neck still exposed. So I snipped a cross into the middle of a simple batting square, slipped it over & tucked it in all the way round.
