Dress Forms: Worthwhile investment?
After an unhelpful duct-tape double, I dismissed dress forms altogether. Besides, I wasn't quite sure how a dress form would deal with my particular body shape, namely: Small bust, sway back, narrow hips, high waist etc.
But I'm beginning to think that having a three-dimensional form may do wonders in my sewing (even if it doesn't reflect my body exactly), to be an aid for basic pinning and fitting and hemming and time out.
What do you think? If you have a dress form, do you love it? How do you use it in your sewing? Or could you live without it?
I also wonder if it makes a huge difference to have an adjustable form or something I can customize to my body.
Thanks for any tips!
