Sewing Dress Forms
Sewing dress forms are mannequins used by seamstresses and tailors in order to tack on clothing to create the perfect fit. Mannequin Mall has a collection of these dress forms to satisfy your sewing needs. With our mannequins made from hefty foam and covered in high quality fabric, you can tack and pin clothing onto the model as many times as necessary.
Our selection contains both male and female dress forms. You can pick from child and adult versions. With each model, you can select a specific dress size. If you need to fit different sizes, you may consider our sewing dress forms with adjustable sizing. They have dials which enable you to expand and retract the dress form to the desired size. Another option is to use a set of form fitting pads to increase the size of only certain body parts on the mannequin.
You can also choose from full and partial body dress forms. Seamstresses who fit clothing at the shoulders, bust, and waist do not require a full-length dress form for fittings. A simple torso model suffices in this case.
However, many seamstresses and designers wish to create clothes which fit perfectly all along the length of the lower body. To sew shorts and pants to perfection, a seamstress requires a full-length model to provide the lower body shape.
For sewing skirts and dresses, a torso dress form with a removable bottom extension will do the job. The bottom extension is a cage-like structure in the shape of a female lower half. It gives the outline which helps a seamstress design and sew dresses and skirts with a flattering silhouette. Many professionals like this model since it allows them to remove the bottom extension whenever they are fitting a blouse or shirt, making it very convenient.
Each dress form is usually attached to a rod which can be lowered or raised to the optimal height so that the seamstress can work at her ideal comfort level.
Sewing dress forms are useful tools in any seamstress’ design studio or tailor shop. One glimpse at our collection of mannequins should convince you that there is a perfect model for your sewing needs.
