The dress form plays a very important role in sewing. Having this makes sure the drape and fit is perfect without having to personally squeeze in through unfinished garment in between stitches.

I was finally able to squeeze in some time this weekend to go to Divisoria and hunt for this baby. I have a couple of unfinished projects (crazy holiday season being my excuse), and having a dress form will help me complete them asap.

We started our search at 168 and 999 malls but didn’t find anything. I did a quick internet search and found a mannequin store at Tutuban Mall Primeblock so we went there. Mannequin sells all kinds of mannequins, dress forms, hangers, and sewing notions. I found one that i like complete with line guides but it costs php 2,600 so decided to look around more. Beside it, we saw dress forms on display outside of Michelle’s.

They sell dress forms of different sizes at half the price of Mannequins’. So i bought mine!

dress form

My dress form measures 34-27-36. It’s a medium. There’s small and large available too. Large size’s waistline is at 31 but since i’m projecting to loose weight, i chose the smaller one. Hehe.

I’m so excited to start working!

Interested to get one for yourself? Visit Michelle’s at L5 – L6 GF Tutuban Primeblock, Tel no 450-3199. They’re just accross RCBC Bank, and beside the Tutuban Mall elevator
