Should i buy a Dressfrom or Mannequin ??

We have had a great email from Adjusttoform which we wanted to share with you. We hope it will help you decide on buying or not to buy a dressform which will help your clothes making clothing alterations and I am sure much more.

Why Choose a Dressform?

A dressform is a three dimensional model of the torso used for fitting clothing that is being designed and made. Whilst commonly referred to as a 'Mannequin', 'Dressmakers Dummy', 'Tailors Form', or a combination - our dressforms differ from traditional mannequins. (which are commonly just used for displaying garments) by allowing the user to adjust the dressform to reflect their body shape.

Traditionally when making clothes much of the process is done on a flat table, but this does not give you any idea what the garment will look like when it is worn or how it will fit you. There are also many aspects of dressmaking. Such as fitting zips at the back of a dress, creating a level hem or fitting a lining into a jacket that are very difficult unless you have four hands and a head that swivels 360 degrees!

 

A dressform is the next best option, it gives you the opportunity to work on the garment while it is in its natural shape - keeping both hands free to work on any area of the garment and letting you stand back to see the final effect from all angles.

1. It's adjustable! - We all know the human body doesn't stay the same shape (especially during Christmas time) so it's ideal that you can adjust the dressform to reflect the ever-changing body.

2. It's affordable! - Professional mannequins can cost up to £1000 for one fixed size. Our products are the perfect option for the home sewing enthusiast combining great quality at a great price.

3. It's an Adjustoform! - We pride ourselves on producing the majority of our forms in the United Kingdom and set the bar for quality far higher than that of our competitors.
