Dress Form Ordered!

After the woes of trying to make standard patterns fit, I finally broke down and ordered a dress form. I’ve already found a lot of resources for draping, and I can’t wait for it to get here! I ordered a large form that expands to my current size, and it’s smallest size is about what my goal measurements are. I’m hoping this will give me the kick in the butt that I need.

Do you use a dress form? I would love to hear any advice you may have.

Happy sewing,

    hope all goes well with your new dress form. I’m never 100 percent sure how to size mine up – I always end up having to put a bra on it! lol xx

    I haven’t ever used a dress form, but I think I will eventually invest in one. My mom had one when I was growing up and made herself lots of beautiful dresses that way.
