I am think about buying a dress form. Does any one have one and if so what brand do you have? What do you like about it? dodnt like? Is it easy to adjust for your size?
I also saw in a past Sew News how to make one form your own body but I am not sure I want to go to the trouble to make it myself.
Any comments ?
Thank you Linda

Hi ,
So which one did you decide to get?
After I asked this question I then did a search and found some helpful information. Thanks for your reply. Linda

Hi Linda!

Santa got me a Singer Dressform #150 'cos it's "Rhonda RED" and I like the nice, big easy dials. After researching the articles at PR, I got the smaller of two models, although my measurements--TODAY--are right at the line.

You realize that you'll "have ta" name her, eh??!! Mine is Behonda, kinda like BeRhonda. Have fun!! Now my sewing room is really professionally decked out--I only need to dive in and sew!!

Thank you Rhonda, HUM sounds like a song!!! I am still looking at which one I want. I was happy to have found the way each person has made them "Their very own twin". So now I just have to decide which one and then get it ordered. I am also trying to figure out just where it will fit in my sewing area. It seems like I started out with a large space but oh how quickly it filled up! Thanks Linda

Just be sure and get it smaller than you so you can pad it up to the correct dimensions. Should be good info about padding dressforms if you do a search.
