This was the first time I purchased or even used dress form. I admit I was a little skeptical at first. When I received it I took my time adjusted it to my measurements. It is a GREAT help when constructing my garments. Not only for the fit but for adding embelihsments also. I would highly recommend this product.Read More
This dress form is helpful in fitting clothes you are sewing. It is far easier to make adjustments to the item you are sewing when it is on the dress form. You can adjust the form fairly easily and then add extra padding of your own where needed to make the measurement match yours.Read More
There are many dress forms to choose from. I like My Double Deluxe because it gives you the functionality of more expensive ĺ forms at a fraction of the cost. This is a great form for a novice to intermediate sewer, but the more garments you churn out, you may want higher-quality form. You do get what you pay for. Being able to adjust the form as my weight fluctuates was a key driver for me, but these dials are plastic and donít seem that sturdy. One of the things thatís important for me to fit is my sway back. I found adjusting the center back and center front lengths on the form a little difficult. Making the adjustment wasnít so bad, getting it to stay adjusted was troublesome. I had to tape it to make it stay. I wish there were markings to show the various center front and center back lengths. Adjusting the dials is an easy process and the measurements hold once you make the adjustments. I would like to see the scale on the dials resemble more of an actual ruler, but thatís a minor quibble. I have not tried the hem marker yet. You can pin on the form, which is nice. Speaking of pins, you may want to glue the pin cushion in place; it pops out sometimes when youíre grabbing pins. Iíve found that the best way to build the form to your personal shape is to invest in a set of foam pads and a cover. The *** System is awesome and works well with the form. I previously used batting. It works well too, but itís messy and takes forever. In summary, this form is very workable. If you want a budget-friendly adjustable form that allows you to fit pants, start here. If your size has been pretty consistent and you can afford to invest more in your form, there are other brands you may want to consider.Read More
I sew dresses and pants and decided I needed a dress form to make things easier at fitting time. I read the reviews and ordered the Dritz "my double deluxe" for the ability to fit pants. The form is adequate for the job and the adjustments for sizing work easily overall. There is very little padding on the form and it did not come with anything to slide onto it to fill the gaps once you make it fit you. I used a yoga top which fit tight and a padded bra on the form which solved the problem. Be aware that the instructions included are MINIMAL and the website is MINIMAL, so you have to figure it out yourself. It is pretty sturdy but I will keep it standing where it won't be bumped around.Read More
First of all, the pant adjustment leg is a wonderful thing to have on a dress form, I was extremely excited of the amount of adjustments, with that being said, I was a little frustrated in how the dress form adjusts. The Dials are extremely hard to turn when you need the fullest waist allowance, I still had to pad because it wouldn't fully open to what the box said, also, when close to the numbers the under & upper bust numbers became larger and larger.. Ladies if you are looking for an upper bust measurement of 32 you won't get it with the size Small, ** If you need an upper bust measurement of 32 , you need to get the smaller size. I thought the 33-41 was the Bust measurement but it is from the Upper Bust Once again I had to Pad out the bust area. to get 38" but the upper bust was at 35. I guess there's no strapless gowns for me. Overall, this is a dress form to be used by me only, I would not recommend it for multiple dress sized girls as you spend allot of time measuring and padding . Just bought a dress and looks lovely on me, but with exact measurements on the dress form, NOT, I would never have bought the dress (because of the rib cage area becomes larger as you add inches to it Hopefully the mother of the bride dress which I start next week will be OK, I have fitted the pattern to the form.Read More
