Starting to pad
I then established the back waist length. On Ellie I marked a horizontal line at bust level, but in the back. I measured from the prominent cervical vertebra to this mid-back point and then from the mid point down to the natural waistline. I saw that she is very short waisted from the mid point down, but above that point she has a long rounded upper back. I worked on sculpting this back and shoulder blade shape with shoulder pads and batting.
I used quilt batting and I have to say I HATE it for padding out a dress form. I much prefer the polyurethane foam that is in some of the shoulder pads.
