This product was advertised correctly and was what I expected it would be.Read More
I wish I had bought this form sooner! Fitting for my daughter and myself is now much easier with all of the adjustments and a little extra "padding" in areas where the form doesn't expand to my size. Lightweight, easy to adjust, true measurements and great price! Also, delivery was prompt and received intact with no problems whatsoever!Read More
This dress form has helped me take my sewing to a new level. It adjusts easily to accommodate a variety of sizes (within the "small" range). It rotates for easy access to all sides. The ability to pin directly into the form makes fitting even easier.Read More
I bought the professional form and this Dritz Twin Fit form. The Dritz form compared to the professional form is very flimsy so I returned it and kept the professional form. Although the professional dress form is expensive, if you compare the quality and the price difference, it's worth the extra $$. Now, if the Dritz had a heavier base, I would have considered keeping it.Read More
I was able to adjust this dress form to exactly my size and I am on the maximum end of the sizing. It is sturdier than I thought it would be. Good buy!Read More
I am very pleased with this product, especially for the great price I got! I shopped around for quite a while, and Overstock.com had the lowest price I could find. The instructions that came with the dress form were easy to follow, but they are very important; especially the part about how to turn the knobs (if you don't follow the instructions, they will probably break...they're made of plastic) and the part about making sure to measure the dress form after setting it and not just relying on what the knobs say. Mine is off a bit in the bust, but that's no problem because you can even set it to half inches. The dress form adjusts in the front, back, and on both sides on the bust, waist, and hips, and has one adjustment on the neck, so it's really easy to get customized measurements. You can even set it to your height and it has measurements on the stand for that purpose. I really like the pin cushion in the neck; it's a nice foam material. I'm not sure what the "foam-backed nylon covering" they talk about in the product description is; I wish the whole dress form was made out of the pin cushion material so you could put pins straight into it, but it's fabric-covered plastic, so at least you can pin things parallel to the surface. Another cool feature I haven't used yet is the hemline setting tool. It's the thing that's sticking out from the stand in the picture. You can move it all the way around to mark the hem. It can move up and down the stand, as well as in and out to adjust to a poofy skirt or a form-fitting one. The bottom of the stand is nice and wide, and I've walked into the dress form before (it was dark!) and not knocked it over. The whole construction FEELS a bit flimsy, but I haven't had any problems with it falling over or getting damaged in any other way. It's light and easy to carry/move. I'm pretty sure that as long as you follow the usage instructions and don't treat it carelessly, it will last as long as you need it.Read More
I used 'My Twin' to make a Halloween costume for my daughter who is at University. I dialed in her measurements and the costume fit her perfectly!! I've been a designer and seamtress for many, many years but have never used a dress form before. I can't believe how much easier it was to construct a garment on the dress form. I don't know how I've gotten along without one for so long! This particular one was a snap to put together out of the box and a cinch to use!! Love it!!Read More
The dress form is gorgeous...much better than other adjustable dress forms which are bulky and sizes don't match up - we returned that one. My daugher is between a size 2 and size 4 and this seems perfect. So far so good!Read More
Questions & Answers
This dress form can be used to drape the waist measurements for pants but you would need to finish off the leg measurements for the pattern (once removed from the dress form). There are no legs to this dress form so they cannot drape much else but the waist and hips.
