This dress form is perfect from the hip up...with no impair to the from, and can be bent back but was bent in shipping.....the dress form is the best sewing friend we can have. Perfect for visually comparing fabrics from a distance. Also for fitting the body. These forms can be padded to duplicate our bodies and allow us to be able to drape ourselves. Great tool in the sewing room. The form comes on wheels and also included one arm. Easy assembly instructions are included. We recommend you purchase a form smaller than you and pad the form to equal you. Get the smallest size you will ever be as you cannot reduce the size of the form. Pad up, not down. We recommend using Pattern #4218 The Knit Sheath dress for the base pattern and once fitted to yourself, pad the form to equal that shape. Simple and fun!! International orders will be charged additional shipping but only what it costs to get the form to your location. Allow approx. one week for delivery, dress form is in stock.
