Seamstresses and designers use sewing mannequins for pinning on fabrics in order to create clothing with the perfect fit. Mannequin Mall has an assortment of these mannequins so that you can find the ideal model for your sewing needs. With our sewing mannequins made out of dense foam covered in high quality fabric, a seamstress can pin and tack on clothing to her heart’s content.
Our collection includes both male and female mannequins. You can choose between child and adult models. You can also select the exact clothing size you need. If you sew different sizes, you might benefit from one of our adjustable mannequins. These models have dials which can expand and retract the body to your desired size.
We also carry a form fitting set of pads. This system is useful if you sew for body types that veer from the average. You simply place padding onto the mannequin in the areas corresponding with the larger body parts such as stomach, thighs, shoulders, and hips. This is a way to build a custom sized mannequin for all your sewing needs.
You can also choose from full and partial body mannequins depending on what body parts your clothing needs to fit. Seamstresses who fit clothing at the waist, bust, and shoulders do not require full-length mannequins. Simple torso models should suffice.
However, some designers and seamstresses make clothes which must fit perfectly all along the length of the lower body. For shorts and pants, a seamstress needs a full-body mannequin.
In order to make skirts and dresses, a torso mannequin with a removable lower half extension is the ideal model. The bottom extension is a cage in the shape of a female body. It provides the silhouette to aid the sewing process. This model is very convenient since it allows a seamstress to work with the bottom extension only when absolutely necessary. Otherwise the cage can be removed to facilitate sewing tops and blouses.
Sewing mannequins are an asset in any tailor shop or design studio. Take a look at our entire collection of mannequins to find the perfect match for your needs.
A sewing mannequin is, in fact, a dress form used in the fitting process by tailors, seamstresses and designers all over the world. However, using a dress form is not reserved only for professionals. On the contrary, even if you’re starting now, a dress form can take your sewing game to the next level. Dress forms are simple and useful tools that can elevate your tailoring work, and working with one is very easy and intuitive.Read More >
