dress forms for home sewing


  1. Rita_Silver | | #1


    It seems I'm having a little trouble posting this message properly--my apologies! The question I'm trying to post is:

    Has anyone used the Fabulous Fit dress form? My sister is considering buying me a dress form for home sewing. We have both looked at the website for Fabulous Fit (www.fabulousfit.com) and it looks like what we have in mind. However, I would appreciate hearing from anyone that has actually used one.

    Thanks in advance.

      *Yes! I have had one for a little over a year. I love it. It was not as hard to get it to match my (odd-shaped) body as I feared -- stuffing those pieces of foam under the cover seemed like it would be fairly random, but it worked well, and took me only about 2 hours. Jill, at Fabulous Fit, was very helpful on the phone. When I finished, however, it looked so much like me that I felt I should run out and join a gym! But it really does help in fitting, and also in attaching facings, etc. so they are smooth. And it's fun to dress her up when the sewing room gets converted to its other use as a guest room....!

        *I am trying to get in touch with Fabulousfit and their 1-800 number does not work in Canada. I live in St. John's Newfoundland and would like to get their regular phone number/address so that I can contact them. Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance.

          *Their website is: http://www.fabulousfit.com/ and somewhere it may have a "normal" phone number or you could e-mail them.

            *To TJThanks for the information. I have checked their website but they do not indicate either an address or telephone number. I will try to email them though and if you have any further information in this regard, I would appreciate hearing from you. Thanks, again.

            *I just called them on the 800 number and got a local phone number for them in Austin Texas: (512) 374-1430. The website gives a mailing address on the homepage (upper left). Have fun!
