    anyone have a dress form?
    any tips or recommendations for finding/purchasing one?

    best style, best brand, price range...???

    i've been resisting this purchase for years but it's really hard to pin things properly without one...

    any helpful info or tips appreciated...

    cool-
    thanks for the link...:flower:

    i also keep reading sewing blogs talk about forms with collapsible shoulders that they rave about...

    i'd like to get one secondhand...
    i like vintage ones and i like the idea of reusing something...

    my dress form is from Barney's visual dept...
    it's a pretty good souvenir of an iconic time in fashion retail history...

    it's come in so handy and I'm using it all the time ...
    yay!
