Hey, I'm looking for suggestions a long torso dress form.. with a crotch! I've been looking the past couple of days for this, but haven't had much luck. I'm decently tall and I must make my own patterns or consistently modify any pattern I use to make it long enough. (I'm talking a significant difference -- above the bust to lower it, at the waist to lower the waist line, etc.)
The "Uniquely You Your Shape" dress form looks *amazing*.. but no crotch, which is an important feature to me. I've been looking at the "Semi Professional Misses 3/4 Form" with Fitting System by Fabulous Fit (http://www.fabulousfit.com/
), as well as this Roxy Display full female form (http://www.roxydisplayinc.com/webpage/dressforms/femalefull.html
I'm really looking for a 3/4 form like Fabulous Fit makes.
I came across the Adjustoform Leg Form 8-part form.. does anyone have any experience with this one? (http://www.adjustoform.com/acatalog/Sew_Deluxe_8part.html
How about Dritz My Double Deluxe Dress Form? It appears to have a crotch, kind of. (http://www.overstock.com/Crafts-Sewing/Dritz-My-Double-Deluxe-Small-Dress-Form/4819630/product.html
) I thought I remember hearing about this one breaking/falling apart during use on some occasions. As far as back waist length on this one, it says it goes up to 16"... while that Roxy full body form above says "NK. TO BK. WT. 16 1/4"... hmm.
Not many of these give measurements for the total crotch length.. and for the ones that do (Fabulous Fit and Roxy) it is too small by a couple of inches. So that's not going to work either.
I tried to make a tape double of my self, but that really didn't work out. My boyfriend tried to help me, but he's really not very good at hands on craft type things.
Any suggestions for dress forms like the ones described would be awesome!
