I agree, however.....after investing in a degree I hope to use it in someway.

What are you looking to do w/ the dress form?

Are you simply just wanting to try things on it, ie fittings?

Or are you wanting to drape on a dress form...

Depending upon what you want to do with it, this type of dress form may or may not be what you are looking for....
If your interested in simply fitting garments for yourself, I'd get an adjustable dress form.
if your looking to pin and drape on a form, I'd look into getting a more professional form. Those come in much smaller sizes, last much longer, are far more sturdy, looke way cooler, however they will not be adjustable

I prefer the ones with legs so I essentially have one with 2 functions

Super cute....I love them..and yes, high waisted things are pretty easy to alter the pattern block..i just flip it upside down to make sure it flares out a bit for the rib cage...

Thanks..unfortunetly I will probably not be getting a job in the fashion business...and that's okay with me. I have been working as a dental professional for almost 8 years so, I can continue doing that....

However, now a days there is a market on etsy and other websites.  . . so...I will definetly try to do some custom design and alterations.

Once again..thanks for the amazing compliments....I've worked hard over the past 3 years of school...Smiley

For practically every assignment we have to do presentation boards.....so I've learned it is much easier to do so on Adobe CS4

Here are a few of my boards

The fabric is cellulose, actually believe it or not it's just plain muslin.  The project called for us to use ONLY muslin..... therefore I used Procion MX fabric dye. Since I wanted only slight color for the skirt, I pre soaked the fabric in soda ash, dried it completly, and then just used rubber bands for the skirt, folded it in accordian fashion and dipped it ombre style.  Smiley

Thanks again!

Yes if your large chested you would have to wear a cami under a convertable dress.....

So what I did was take 2  pieces 12 wide and 90 long, a circle skirt cut on the fold, and a facing piece cut for the skirt, died the fabric, then basted the long pieces overlapping the Center Front w/ right sides together.  Then I sewed the waist facing on and flipped it all in, stiched it down, and then sewed up the SS and Zip...

Pretty easy...works best in Jersey. Smiley
