Mini stuffed DIY dress form pattern in sizes UK 8-26 (US 4-22)
If you would like a half-sized corseted dress form in many sizes to practise draping, this is your product! Most half-sized mannequins conform to standard measurements - this one is cinched to mimic a corseted body.
Not only does it come in 10 dress sizes at three different heights (short, medium, tall) but there are 4 additional cup sizes to create a closer bust measurement plus an enhanced or reduced hip to give you a larger or smaller hip to waist ratio.
Using my own standard body, standard measurements tables, and photos of anatomy (spine curvature for instance), I have created a product that is multi-sized and mimics the human body as much as possible. With clever stuffing these gorgeous little mannequins stand up on their own on a table or can be hung from a button sewn to the neck.
These make perfect little presents for you sewing friends - why not make one in their size?!
The measurements marked on this pattern are the shoulder and back - the hip line and bust line for every size is indicated on the centre front panel and the waistline is indicated on every panel. See the measurement chart in the photos for all the measurements used to create this multi-sized dress form.
Skill level - intermediate.
Notions; 0.42/16'' fabric - upholstery fabric works well and the less fraying the better! One 10mm eyelet - this can be inserted in the base at the centre and dowling then inserted up to the neck Stuffing - fabric scraps plus polyfil works the best 3 or 4mm felt for the base, neck and shoulders (I find this works best in these areas to strengthen them in preference to interfacing) Wadding to pad out the cups A large button for fixing to the neck if you want to hang the mannequin
I can also make a custom fit for you - please get in touch.
