Why don't any of the major home dress form companies make and adjustable child's form? I live 1200 miles from the child I sew for who is just turning 3 and it is so hard to sew for someone without a body to fit. You could use the same one for boys and girls for say sizes 2-6 and then another for 8-12. I would think it would be easy to produce since there isn't a bosom to deal with.

They do make one and I have one.
Mine is just almost okay now for my slim seven year old at its smallest settings. It should last until she is 11/12 or so.

I bought is from an online supplier in the UK. Mine is Navy Blue.
I cant find on my computer where I bought it from now, but I found them by searching for childs dressmaking dummy on google. I think it was about £90 UK Pounds.

They must be available in the US somewhere. I don't think I have seen one though that would be suitable for smaller children aged 2 to 6.

Subject: Adjustable childrens dress forms Date: 6/12/13 0:31 AM

I don't know if they still make or carry them but I bought my adjustable child's dress form about 12 years ago from Hancock's.

I just googled child's dress form and Amazon carries them.

None of the forms that Amazon sells for children are adjustable except in height.
