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 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:
http://cgi.ebay.de/verstellbare-Schneiderpuppe-Diana-D-bis-Gr.60_W0QQitemZ220607952345QQcmdZViewItem?rvr_id=&rvr_id=&cguid=3707c6001290a0e204270c87ffe7a3ef
-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
