SINGER Adjustable Dress Form, Red, Large
An ideal sewing companion, this fully adjustable dress form allows for pattern adjustments before cutting, better fittings and alterations, and an opportunity to creatively work with fabrics and see how they will drape and hang on the body. Twelve dials make it easy to change the dimensions of the body, including settings at the neck for smooth collars and necklines.
The height also adjusts, and a hem gauge comes included to mark the hemline for skirts and dresses. In addition, the unit's red fabric cover makes it possible to pin items onto the form.
The form requires basic assembly, but no tools are required. An instruction book comes included.

However, there is one major drawback. You can't use the form to create tight-fitting tops or dresses, because the chest shape is not true to life! In real life, breast width transitions gradually from top to bottom, but at the bottom it cuts sharply in where the breast ends and the rib cage begins (under the cup). On this dress form though, the breasts thin out gradually on the underside as well, making the ribcage in that area disproportionately wide. With the waist and breast measurements set exactly to my own, it is *impossible* to even put my bra on the form!
It would be great for loose shirts and dresses, but keep in mind that the chest area is messed up.
I took a breath and went in to adjust her to roughly my size. At first, I got very frustrated as she didn't seem to really adjust to the sizes stated. There are no good instructions for adjusting her included. Mostly, it is easy to figure out, except the neck adjustment. So, here is my experience: Start at the neck. push down and turn the dial to the right - start with at least a couple of 'notches', then to the bust, adjust all 4 (don't try to get her perfect yet), adjust her to your measurement on all four dials (front, back and two sides). Move to the next four dials and key to your waist size, the next four and key to your hip size. Go back up and measure her bust, if the bust size is not equal to the measurement on the dials, adjust move the neck dial to the right or left (left smaller/right bigger). She has body length adjustments, but I didn't need them.Read more ›
My Original Review: "The medium I bought was to use as a form to create a Mardi Gras costume. When I ordered it I chose this model mostly because of the better reviews. People didn't seem as pleased with the smaller version. I also assumed that since I wore a medium, a medium would be a good size to choose. I wear a 10-12 in clothing size.
Now that I have it, I wish I would have gotten a small. The 30 inch waist is not small enough and while I could have easily added some padding to the small, there is no way to subtract from the medium. You may want to spend a little time looking at all the measurements on the small form vs. the medium and see which allows the most latitude in adjustment for your particular body style."
