For the holidays I’m giving away a set of all of my DIY miniature dress form patterns. These include:
My favorite, the sewn and stuffed dress form. This one comes in three sizes (1/4 scale, 1/3 scale, and 1/2 scale):
The stuffed dress form instructions include a pattern to make the cardboard stand shown in the picture above, on the left.
Next is the paper half-scale dress form:
The paper forms can be covered with paper mache, and optionally covered with a sewn non-stretch cover,
or a knit cover (the knit cover is free on Craftsy):
The paper dress form instructions also include a pattern to make the cardboard stand shown in the picture above.
The non-stretch cover can also be sewn and stuffed to make a dress form. It’s a little simpler to put together than the sewn dress form that comes in three sizes.
Also included is a set of basic block patterns that can be used for flat pattern making practice. These fit the paper dress form best, but can be used with the sewn forms if you alter the patterns a little (or use them as-is if you are not too picky about the fit).
I have a some free dress patterns available on Craftsy that will fit any of the half-scale forms:
To enter the giveaway, leave a comment telling me what you would use your dress form for. Would you use it as a decoration? To practice flat pattern making or draping? Or something else?
I’ll use a random number generator to pick a winner on January 1, 2016.
The patterns are pdfs and will be emailed to you, so the giveaway is open to everyone worldwide.
Good luck, and happy holidays!
