    Sew your own pinnable Custom-Fit Dress Form from scratch for better, more accurate fittings, pattern drafting, and draping. No extra dress forms or body taping is needed for this project. You can replicate your figure by customizing belly protuberance, buttocks shape, posture and shoulder slope. In addition to our Fit Adjustments, you can add neck circumference, back width and other key measurements.

    This pattern is NOT suitable to be put on a finished dress form and is meant to be fully stuffed with polyfil. The dress form sewing pattern will have a negative ease built in, which will allow for better measurement control during stuffing and the stuffed dress form will expand during the stuffing process to match you measurements.

    Please do not try on the shell, as it will NOT fit you. If you want to make a dress form cover to cover your existent dress form, please add 10% to your Bust and Waist circumference.

    We included an explainer video, please scroll down to watch. Double check your measurements and proceed to check out, as usual, using PayPal at the check out (or other payment methods such as Store Credit etc).
