It was that expensive actually, and its one of those that change sizes, adjustable one. Bc I work with clients of different sizes it comes on handy instead of buying one of each size. You can find pretty good ones for less than 200 usd.
Do you know of anywhere (online) that I could find some good information about making your own patterns? I would like to get a dressform, but I don't have the money at the moment, considering it's just after the holidays and all.

Not sure if this is the right thread to ask this but I wondered what's the best way to shorten a skirt or trousers that have unfinished hems? Do you just cut it off or what does "unfinished" exactly mean anyway? Is it just not fully finished or is there absolutely nothing done to the hem?

yes, nothing further, just cut it and if you like the frayed look, you can do a bit more controlled destruction by hand and leave it like that. If that is how the trouser/skirt was hemed originally.

^Perfect, thanks! It was probably a silly question anyway but I really wasn't sure, haha.

It wasn't a dumb question at all, it feels weird when to alter something that much you don't have to do much!!

Concerning sewing patterns, have any of you ever come across patterns from any designers?
Someone posted a few patterns from Mcqueen from his Atlantis show, and recently I found a pattern from Carol Christian Poell

chinsky.com

stylezeitgeist.com

I also have the SHOWStudio patterns from Yamamoto, Galliano, Mcqueen, ...

So do any of you have other patterns? I would really love to see some from Lanvin

Does anyone know any good places to get a good dressform from? I don't want one of those adjustable dressforms, I'm looking for more of the industry standard ones.

It can either be from online or in NYC.

Does anyone know how these hidden buttons and hidden pockets were created? Are they simply steam pressed with the button and pocket underneath the self fabric?

That's interesting.

I don't think they are just pressed because the shape of the button wouldn't be so perfect. I may need to touch them to know for sure. It looks really cool.

it looks like they've constructed the coat and then right at the end put it on an industrial heat press like the big ones you get at uni of course with the coat unbuttoned because you can even see where the line of the lapels have pressed into the coat when its been laid flat and pressed, well thats my best guess as to how the buttons and lines on the coat are created.
