I actually hesitated ordering this reading some of the reviews about how light it was and tended to tip over. I am so happy I ordered it. For me it has had no problems at all. I thought it was easy to put together and adjust. I'm an average sewer and have not encountered any signs of it tipping on me when I was using it. Already it is making my sewing more enjoyable and can alter the pattern and clothing in much less time and more accurately.

I bought this soley for the purpose of selling clothing on eBay. I am not sure if the quality is sturdy enough for true seamstresses who would use it daily. It is a bit on the "flimsy" side, but again - it is fine for putting a jacket on to take pictures for eBay. I like how you can turn the plastic knobs to make the form larger or smaller in all areas. It is quite easy to adjust.
This is the first dress form I have used/purchased. Overall it seems to do the task needed. My only complaint is it seems to be made out of very cheap material and is very flimsy and thin. I'm hoping that the size dials on it holds up, because they seem to be pretty cheap as well. Overall I would buy it again, but Im not sure on what the quality of a dress form of this price should be.
What you want to do with it will determine if you want to purchase it. If you're a professional or semi professional, you might not want this. I'm wanting something to use to display clothes to sell on line, or a little sewing, this will do the job. If I had to use it a lot, I think I would invest for a better quality form.
Very pleased with the dress form. It was easy to make the adjustments to customize for me. I had made my own many years ago and of course over time my body changed, to say the least. So this is a great alternative and can be adjusted over time! Very sturdy and well made. Good value for the price at Overstock, compared to the same product in my local fabric store.
I finally used my dress form and though it serves it's purpose, I am disappointed in the quality of the craftsmanship. The knobs move under the torso, and the stand pole doesn't stay tight enough to keep the height I set it for. I expected the instructions on how to set at "my size" to be a lot clearer. Seriously would return if it had no use at all and pick another brand!
Well.... this is definitely from another country, with no English on how to adjust it, and the adjusting is pretty hard and you cannot get the measurements right. I have used it, BUT THE NEXT TIME I WILL MAKE SURE IT IS AMERICAN MADE. Also, the measuring piece at the bottom does not stay up.... could be just me, not too happy, but I am making it work.
