I'm looking to buy a dress form, but I would like an adjustable one. It has to be plus size, because I'm a US22/24.
I found one on Joann fabric's website, but the reviews said if falls apart and isn't good at all.

Here's the other thing, I'm an American in Germany! I have family back in America, so if the place doesn't ship to APO I can ship it to my family and they can ship it to me. But if you know of a German place that wold work too!

Thank you so much for your help!
You all do such wonderful work!

I'm from Texas but currently live in Germany.

I'm an APO in Korea and recently purchased a dress form from Sewing Machines Plus out of CA. Mine is a non-adjustable PGM Pro dress form, but I plan to pad her to my measurements. I also recently had a large cutting mat sent from Hancock Fabrics so if JoAnn's doesn't ship APO you can try their competitor.

i'm a German in exile in Scotland  Cool
look on google.de for "Schneiderpuppe". US size 22 is about 50 in Germany. i went to google shopping and i found this one on ebay:
-sorry i still haven't got it to put on links, but i hope it works, ebay.de and Schneiderpuppe Diana D might be faster. not sure about reviews, but have a look. And altho it states used in google, it says new in ebay.
and Free Postage!

hope it helps
