wolf dress forms

magentapixwix | Posted in General Discussion on

I was very interested to read the article about the dress forms. I do flat pattern designing so my old dress-form is used mainly for hanging things on. What I really want to know, just out of curiosity, is why it is advantageous for the dress form to have collapsible shoulders?

    It's much easier to get things on the dress form without stretching if you can collapse the shoulders

      Sorry - I still don't get it. Does it make a difference whether the garment has sleeves or not?

        It does not really matter no.  To illustrate try putting a blouse or skirt on over your head with out collapsing or rounding your shoulders forward to do it.  You cannot because the circumference of your skirt waist is smaller then the circumference of your chest and shoulders.
