Make your own personal dressmakers mannequin to your own size - using duct tape, rubbish bag, scissors and a friend
Colleen been duct taped starting from under the bust, as you can see shaping the upper body then
 Kerry is taping the lower body in Sue's dressmakers mannequin
then here it is after being cut, you then tape up the back area you cut to remove, make a stand, place your dressmakers mannequin, stuff with toy stuffing, making sure you cover armholes and base. 
There are lots of similar methods on the internet if wish to make your own.
