The dress form is just what I wanted. It was easy to order, had a good price and arrived in a timely manner.Read More
This form is very user friendly and I like that it grows and loses with me! It adjusts from the neck all the way down to the bottom of my butt...lower than a lot of dress forms. I like that I can pin right into it as well. It's been a fun new tool that has really boosted my sewing success. Love it.Read More
I'm 5'3" 130lb small frame. 36-31-38 measurements. Bought medium form but wish I had gotten the small. Other than that this form is great!Read More
The dress form appears to be very nice. However, the first one I received was broken possibly due to rough handling while shipping. I had to get a flashlight and look inside it to see what the problem was, and one of the braces that stretch the form to size it had been broken off. I called Overstock and they replaced it immediately! Thank you Overstock. But ... the second one I received had a part that had not been quality inspected by the manufacturer and would not fit in the base. Again I called Overstock and they sent the part right away, no questions asked, no charge and they also paid to have the original dress form sent back to them. Overstock has great service and great pricing, it was just a little disappointing to have to wait for the part when I wanted to use this great product. So, buyer beware and check things out before you throw away that box. Otherwise I am very happy with the dress form.Read More
I believe the description of this adjustable dress form had a range of 37"-46" bust/hip. That (and the price) sounded good to me. My bust/hip measures 42". No problem, I thought, as I began cranking the adjustment dials all around the form. When I achieved the correct measurements I discovered that the above-bust (upper chest) would go no lower than 39" whereas mine measures 38". The upper chest size is an important fitting factor in pattern building. Don't ask me how it could ever actually get down to a 37" bust line if the upper chest can go no lower than a 39". All dress forms need adjusting/padding to suit each individual, but, generally speaking, you can only adjust "up" -- you can't whittle the thing down. I think perhaps the manufacturers of dress forms need to include more body measurements in their product descriptions, including upper chest, below bust, upper hip and SHOULDER SIZE. Shoulder size is a very big deal in the land of fitting (so is shoulder shape). This dress form's shoulders were 3" shy of my shoulder width and the shape was too sloped (I have broad, square shoulders). Adjusting it for this little problem was no easy task (nor was the result perfect), but I bought a leotard, cut the crotch and used it to more or less reshape the shoulders and corral the other padding. Too, center front, center back and side seam locations are important with dress forms. If you have an adjustable one, those are the areas that will end up with a gap (no place to put the pins when draping). The manufacturer suggests taping over the gaps once you've got the size right, but tape (of course) isn't that pin-friendly. All in all, it more or less worked out but I'd hate to have to fit a bridal gown to it or a tailored suit. Given I don't intend to do either, it will suffice and the price was great!Read More
I have wanted a dress form for years, just to try my hand at designing my own product. The ideas just keep coming. It took about five minutes to take my measurements, adjust the form, and start messing around with fabric. At the end, I tried it on, and guess what? A perfect fit!!! Good product, good price, another perfect buy from Overstock!Read More
If you create garments for others or if your body measurements are changing, I highly recommend this dress form. My other dress forms have adjustment dials on the inside and are difficult to turn. This form, with the dials on the outside must be the top of the line because it's so easy to adjust! It was also very easy to assemble. And the biggest plus is that Overstock had the very best price I could find. This is the fourth dress form I've bought over the years and by far, it's the very best of them all!Read More
I have been very happy with this dress form. It is the first one I have had, so I wasn't sure what to expect. It really helped with my design process, and since I was working on a costume for my daughter it made it easier to figure out little problems and fit issues even when she wasn't home. It is tricky to pick it up without pulling it off the base, and I am still figuring out all of the adjustments, but so far so good. A few weeks after I bought it, I saw the same one on sale at a major fabric store, and the sale price was still much higher than what I had paid here.Read More
I was impressed! I have always wanted a dress form but could not afford one. I had been pricing them for a while now, i felt i had to see one in person. But when i read the other reviews, i figured it i didn't like it I could always return it. I'm so glad i did!Read More
I was looking for a basic, simple dress form and this one fit the need perfectly. While not a master seamstress or tailor, I do like to make my own clothes from time to time and having something that I can prefit the patterns and muslins on will be a major set forward in turning out more professionally constructed items. It was easy to assemble, even for someone with ten thumbs like me.Read More
