Singer Dress Form Actual prize may differ in color.

Take your sewing to the next level by using a sturdy dress form. Goes without saying how useful having a dress form is. Plus, one that is adjustable and can be used for multiple body types is beyond handy for the avid seamstress.

An ideal sewing companion, this fully adjustable dress form allows for pattern adjustments before cutting, better fittings and alterations, and an opportunity to creatively work with fabrics and see how they will drape and hang on the body. Twelve dials make it easy to change the dimensions of the body, including settings at the neck for smooth collars and necklines.

The height also adjusts, and a hem gauge comes included to mark the hemline for skirts and dresses. In addition, the unit’s blue fabric cover makes it possible to pin items onto the form. The form requires basic assembly, but no tools are required.

Measurements:

  • Bust: 33 – 41 inches / 84 – 104 centimeters
  • Waist: 25 – 33 inches / 64 – 84 centimeters
  • Hips: 36 – 44 inches / 91 – 112 centimeters
  • Neck / Back: 15+ inches / 38+ centimeters

All you have to do to enter to win this prize is answer the following question in the comments section below:

“What is the hardest area to fit for you?”

And, the winner from yesterday’s contest is Darlene J! Darlene I will be in touch with you shortly to tell you how to claim your prize.

  1. shara grau says:

    My bust and hips are the hardest. I have a odd shaped body and gave found it extremely difficult to sew cloths for myself using a table to messure for myself. Would be a blessed addition to my sewing corner.

  2. dianne pfouts says:

    bust area….ugh!!

  3. Hunter Becat says:

    My bust is the hardest to fit for me.

  4. jennifer fraunfelder says:

    i could sew use this. the hardest part to fit for me is my chest.

  5. Dawn Jones says:

    I would say my stomach area. Any weight I have is in that area and it makes it ackward.
    Have a great day!

  6. Julie Perez says:

    I’m petite but not a size 2. Definitely my waist…pants never fit right.

  7. HEATHER says:

    Always wanted one

  8. Ann Marie says:

    The hardest area for me to fit is the bust. It has been a lifelong frustration.

  9. Bárbara Rodríguez says:

    It will be bust .

  10. I have problems with a large bust and a sloping shoulder.

  11. Katherine nester says:

    Waist

  12. Kathleen C says:

    I am having a difficult time sewing for I have gained much weight. I used to use a size 6 in patterns but now it is in the double digits. I tried to make a dress for a wedding and it was a disaster. The bust was too small and I did not read the pattern correctly and found too late that the zipper was to be on the outside (because of new fashion style) therefore, I did not compensate for the difference. Needless to say, I did not wear that dress. It is still in the cutting room to decide how to fix the mess!

  13. Debbie W. says:

    I have a horrid time fitting something that looks descent on my fat belly. Gained a lot of fat there with cortisol from stress in the last few years of work. Big boobs don’t help the fitting issue either1

  14. annette says:

    I never seem to get the length right for shirts and under my arms is another place I have issues.

  15. CathiB says:

    Happy Holidays. I have had one of these on my wish list forever! For me its my shoulders, they are wider than most store
    bought cloths and sewing my own just fits better. Having a sewing mannique would be awesome to set to exactly like me and
    save a ton of trying on and guessing on my own.

  16. Nancy Donavan says:

    Neck to waist…

  17. mary says:

    Hardest part to fit is my waist andhips

  18. sandra Bartolomé says:

    Definitely my hips! With hips like mine, I found out it’s actually better fitting my garments in a Spanish guitar rather than a non-adjustable dress form :)

  19. Judy Krier says:

    My hardest area to fit is the bust.

  20. helene says:

    Definitely hips & waist

  21. Jan Hvizdos says:

    My hips and stomach are the hardest areas to fit.

  22. laura b says:

    Bust

  23. Leesa Hunter says:

    My bust is the biggest problem area, although the hips are a pretty close second.

  24. Elline says:

    My bust is the hardest!

  25. Ginger Kivisto says:

    Waitline and hips.

  26. Nancy Stornes says:

    My waist is the hardest area to fit.

  27. BJMarley says:

    The waist-hip area

  28. Evon Long says:

    It’s a toss up between 3 areas, but I would gave to say my arm length due a slight curve in my back. They are not the same.

  29. Susan F says:

    My waist as I have an hourglass figure and I am a small size.

  30. Sheryl says:

    The most difficult for me is the waist.

  31. Sheryl A says:

    The waist is the most difficult for me.

  32. The hardest area to fit me is my back because it is so broad, I have to find medium size shirts to accommodate me.

  33. Debbi Murray says:

    Small of back due to curvature!

  34. Babs Jenkins says:

    The hardest area to fit for me is the (my) back – too many years spent hunched over a sewing machine has given me a dowagers hump – my back is rounded and wont straighten out any more. But I persevere – just find the right style top to suit my figure.

  35. Rebecca Becker says:

    shoulder to bust is the hardest to fit, followed closely by short waist!

  36. Sarah says:

    Hips/thighs in relation to waist. But the whole lower body in general, short waist, large thighs, small waist, long legs. But I think a dress form could help too

  37. Jillian Parent says:

    My shoulders and back to waist. My spine is curved and makes for some funny fits!

  38. CathyH says:

    My thighs

  39. Stephanie says:

    Definitely the waist.

  40. Susan Guynes says:

    I have a hard time fitting myself. My stomach and bust are hardest. I have actually gone to the fabric store to buy one of these several times. I walk into the store and forget what I’m shopping for. I happily leave with my new fabric only realizing what I forgot to buy. I then cry quietly into my hoard of fabulous fabric. Did I mention that I’m a fabric hoarder?

  41. Sarah P says:

    Waist placement. Long wasted and ready made clothes are often way too short waisted for me (coat belts at ribs, etc.).

  42. Angelia says:

    I would love to own a dress form but they are too expensive needless to say that I’ll continue to sacrifice using hangers with a coat on it until I can afford to buy a dress form.

  43. Janna Davis says:

    long torso, getting the waist line right

  44. Marsha says:

    waist

  45. Zina Dawson says:

    Mt whole body is challenging as I am new to garment sewing and still learning how to ration all three accurately. A dress form would be helpful as I would have a mini me to try things on.

  46. Could really use this, I have a hard time fitting things on myself…
