Mannequins used by seamstresses to pin and fit clothing are referred to as dress forms. These models are made of sturdy foam covered in high quality cloth. Mannequin Mall offers a varied selection of male dress forms for sewing men’s shirts, pants, and jackets. Take a look at our mannequins to find the optimal model for your purposes.
Each dress form model is made out of a dense foam covered in linen, jersey, or canvas. This fabrication allows the professional to pin and tack on clothing repetitively without damaging the mannequin.
Male dress forms come in full body as well as partial body variations. For a seamstress who only sews items fitted at the shoulders, chest, and waist, a torso dress form meets all her needs. Other professionals require a mannequin with a complete body in order to fit clothing along the entire length of the legs. A third variety is the torso model with a removable bottom extension. This type of dress form is ideal for tailors who work on both tops and bottoms, enabling them to remove the extension whenever they are working only on the upper portion.
Browse through the different dress forms and find the size you are looking for. Male dress forms come in child as well as adult versions. The child models have sizing options by age. Men’s dress forms come with specific measurements for each model.
Every dress form typically is attached to a rod which stands on a base for stability or on wheels for mobility. The rod tends to be adjustable in height so that each seamstress can work at her optimal comfort level.
Investing in a dress form is an asset for any tailor shop or design studio. With all the variations at your disposal, our collection has the perfect model for your needs.
