new outfit for an old dress form

A short while ago I found an old dress form in our basement. It  was in no good condition. But I always wanted one. So I decided to sew a new outfit for it. My first problem was how to make a pattern for it. I wanted to have a quilted costume so I can better use pins on it. I pined the batting on the dress form stitching to get the pattern. Then I quilted the fabric directly on the batting.
