I'm a new member here so if this topic has been covered, I apologize...
I have been looking to purchase a dress form but there are so many types and ranges of quality that I am overwhelmed with trying to make a decision.
I am a home sewer, not a professional, and I sew mostly for myself. I am a hard-to-fit body type (big build, tall, long arms, thick shoulders, etc.) and really want a good quality form. I realize I am going to have to spend a few hundred dollars, but it would be worth it to me. I bought a "cheap" one ($129) several years ago - it was flimsy plastic with a nappy nylon coating ~ adjustments were a disaster and it was so lightweight it tipped over very easily. I ended up throwing it out.
I am hoping to get an adjustable one because I would like to use it for my daughter as well. (Plus it would be good just in case my body shape changes...lol!)
Does anyone have any recommendations?
Thanks so much!
