These Dress Forms are ideally suited for every phase of tailoring and dressmaking. Fitting, designing, alterations, remodeling, and draping. Adapted to the standards of the finest dressmakers and Fashion Design departments of leading universities.

These Dress Forms are hand molded with processed paper mache and fiberglass by experienced craftsmen to the exact dimensions and treated for durability. The dress form is then covered with linen and has a layer of fabric padding under it. All of our female dress forms come with collapsible shoulders, making it easy to slip on and off garments. All forms also come with wheels and are height adjustable allowing you to move the form anywhere you want. A right arm is optional and is easily tied around the neck. Some assembly required.

Use the chart above to find your Dress Form Size by matching your Bust, Waist, Hip, and Back Length measurements together as best you can. We recommend a smaller dress form in case of weight loss; the dress form can go up in size, but not down. We show techniques for using your dress form on our webcast "The Dress Form", including how to pad the dress form to increase the size. Wheels are included with this dress form. A Right arm is available for an additional $49.99. FREE ARM ON ALL ORDERS PLACED IN JUNE!!

The dress forms come with the measurments as in the chart above. If you have a shorter back length, get a smaller form and pad the form so that the waist is higher. Use the form as a base and then pad up to your size and height. You can shorten the waist length by padding up.
