*****My First Dress Form*****
I’m so excited… I ordered my first dress form today from ATS. Atlanta Thread and Supply Company. My first ever!
I ordered this one
I searched for a long time. I went through thinking I was going to make the duct tape one till I got feedback that the pins get sticky and I wasn’t comfortable that the size would be acurate enough. Then I almost made the paper tape one. I was pretty sure about that one and I still may make one just for fun at some point. I looked at many forms online and narrowed it down to about 3 after my fiance finally convinced me that I should get a “real” one. This is the one I decided on.
If anyone has it I would love to know how you like it… or don’t like it. I did ask this question before on other forums, just not here. So I did get feedback.
I’m busty and a size 8. I needed something that would adjust to my hourglass figure and I sure hope this one is going to do that.
I also considered this one…

I just wanted to share my excitement. I can’t wait to put her up and adjust her and name her and make my first muslin on her… which I did see a post for on this forum!
BTW the sales girl was awesome on the phone. I think that’s worth noting since these days it seems it’s hard to come across good sales people. At least that’s been my experience. Just in case anyone is interested. She answered all the questions I knew to ask and offered information that seemed credible and not just to sell the product. I will order from them again. The links above are to their website and they have lots of other stuff in case anyone is interested.
Thanks for listening
