Our exclusive full body female dress forms are made to replicate expensive professional forms, and could be customized to your own size, figure and shape. Perfect for DIYers, home sewists, knitters as well as professional costume designers, custom clothiers, alteration ateliers, boutiques and any business involved in creation of clothing. Our full body dress forms are also perfect for fashion indie designers, fashion students and brands.

    Our full body DYI body replica dress form will help you with precise fittings, pattern drafting, and draping. No additional dress forms or body taping are required. Customize the height, belly protrusion, buttocks shape, posture, and shoulder slope to replicate your unique figure. Use our Fit Adjustments to enter key measurements such as apex to apex width.


    Important: our dress form sewing pattern has a slight negative ease, which will help with better control to get your measurements just right, during the stuffing process. The filled dress form will expand to match your measurements during the stuffing process.


    This pattern is unsuitable for a dress for, cover on an existing dress form and it is intended to be filled with polyfill, or similar materials.

    HELP & FAQs

    In general you might say the Missy Fit is for US sizes 2-12 and the Plus Size is size 14-28. But every body is differently proportioned, it is not always such a clean difference. The Missy Fit is for bodies that are not so curvy, the Plus Size pattern is for people whose bodies are more curvy.

    Sometimes the automated system makes this mistake. Just email us [email protected] and we will send you the pattern with seam allowance.

    The DIY dress form patterns have 10% negative ease on some of the horizontal measurements - bust, underbust, waist. Do not try to wear your dress from to check the fit, it is not meant to fit you. (The pattern for the dress form cover DOES NOT have any negative ease)

    If there is any problem with your pattern (measurements came out too big/too small, you input wrong measurements, you lost/gained weight, etc) we can reprocess the pattern for you. (We charge $2 for pattern reprocessing)

    We would recommend making a muslin/test since it is so much work and frequently the pattern you use for the dress form is very special, so you don't want to waste your good fabric.

    Sometimes the pattern comes out perfectly, and sometimes not. Every body is so unique and different, we are not yet able to have every pattern perfect yet. (YET!)

    If your body is not symmetrical, just send us an email [email protected]. Purchase one pattern that reflects the measurements for one side of your body, and we can reprocess the pattern with measurements for the other half of your body, then you can Frankenstein the patterns together (We charge $2 for pattern reprocessing).
