Gwen Spicer has a great paper with a really nice versatile design that you can build, although she recommends the internal armature be made by metalsmith.

She does have a similar design using PVC as well.

I believe that similar mannequins were built for an exhibit at the Wright Museum of Art at Beloit College while I was a student there. I’ll see if I can get a copy of the design for those if you would like.
