I make custom costumes for a living, and I purchased this mannequin for a plus-sized customer. With this purchase, I now own all of the various Dritz mannequins. For the price, I feel that the full line of Dritz mannequins are worth the investment. They are easy to set, and have a nice sturdy stand. The hem guide is very useful at times. At times, I add extra padding to certain areas of my mannequins to aid in recreating different sizes, especially at the bust. It's easy to add a stuffed bra, or some strips of batting for padding hips or whatnot for a prefect fit. The markings on the stand are useful, since they include a shoulder height feature, which is a nice way to determine the proper height of a person, since mannequins don't have heads.

... buy a Dritz. I have been sewing for over 20 years and have studied at FIDM, so I know a little about this stuff. Ideally, I would love to have a Professional Dress form that I could pin into and manipulate, but for the most part, I am a home sewer. I make historic costumes for myself and my family, but this is the first real Dress Form that I have bought for my size and I am very happy with it. I went for the full figure model because I am a size 24 top with 28 bottom. This has the largest measurements I could get and it fits my clothes, so I am very pleased with it. Being an adjustable form will allow me to use it, even if I get the gumption to lose the weight I need to. Great price for a good product.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good.
I love my dress form, I can adjust it to my measurements, and it's perfect...I wanted one for so long, and now I finally can sew to my hearts content....it's exactly as promised, it was delivered promptly, and I'm just so happy with it....
This is definitely a full figure dress form. She is much smaller in the bust than I am but that was easily fixed with a bra and some stuffing. I design clothes without a pattern so this is a must for me. Very Pleased!
So thankful that I found a dress form that was large enough for my measurements. I've tried everything including "add on" foam with a jersey body cover. Nothing worked well. At last I can use the "draping method" for my clothing constructon.
I ordered this product because I want to return to making clothes for myself. I've sewn for many years but mostly for home decorating or gifts for others. Now I have time to dig into my fabric stash and sew for me! The dress form will help me to ensure a good fit without constantly trying the project on. This form is easily adjusted and good and sturdy.
