I am looking for the video and book for Carol Stith Zahn, My Twin Dressform. There is no website currently. It appears that her company closed. If anyone has the book or video please reply. Thank you

I'm sorry I don't have the answer to your question, but if you don't find it I recommend the Fabulous Fit System to accompany your dress form. For years I used batting, a bra, and a camisole on mine, but it packed down over time. I love this system and it's so easy to pin patterns or fabric on it. Here is a link from Allbrands, a web site I have ordered from for years without a problem.

A number of us in an ASG group made these forms. You can buy the supplies and the instructions from Lynda Schoppe in Ventura, CA. Look her up on Google.

My apologies! Dritz makes a Twin Fit dress form and that's what I thought you were referencing. Oops!

HI,
I'm from Australia, and cannot call Lynda directly.
Are you willing, or able, to find an email address so that I may purchase a dress form?
Thank you,
Sam

I actually had Lynda Shoppe wrap me and produce a My Twin for me about five years ago. It was fairly easy to arrange, since I live only 40 minutes or so from her business.

I love the form, but am sad to say that it appears she might have gone into another line of work (I remember that she was going to nursing school when she made my form). I'm not sure about this, but it does seem that the website is dysfunctional these days.

However, there are now many online tutorials showing how to make these expandable foam dressforms (some here on pr, if I remember correctly). I have read and watched lots of them, and they use the very same technique Lynda employed.

Are you still looking for the My Twin instructions? I have the video which is very good. I'm hoping to make the dress form this weekend (I've had the kit for 6 years waiting to lose weight!).

Hi HonBon
Do you still have a copy of the My Twin Dressform instructions? I wanted to order the kit 2 years ago but wanted to lose some weight first. I've given up on losing the weight, and now I can't find the kit. Your post made me very hopeful. Please let me know if you still have a copy or where I can get them.
Thanks.
