You save 10% purchasing all items in a set.
Trousers, jeans, shorts, jumpsuits, bodysuits, lingerie, and swimwear — all of these things will be easy to create because Sofia has legs.
The cover is made of cotton; it is very durable and low maintenance. Plus, the seams on the cover double as reference construction lines — a beneficial feature for anyone who is draping patterns on the dress form.
Another great thing about Sofia is that you can steam and iron clothes right on it without any restrictions. Pressing garments on the form rather than on a flat surface can level up your sewing and make the results look much more professional.
ARMS are available in the following sizes:
S-M: Biceps 27 cm, wrist 15 cm, length 57 cm. Best used with dress forms sized US0/EU34 – US4/EU38
M-L: Biceps 30 cm, wrist 16 cm, length 60 cm. Best used with dress forms sized US6/EU40 – US18/EU52
✔ 100% COTTON COVER WITH PROFESSIONAL CONSTRUCTION LINES – cover is made from pure cotton fabric in natural color. It can be easily removed (for dry cleaning purposes or replacement for example) and then put back on the mannequin. The cover has professional tailor construction lines and it’s extremely durable.
✔ POLYURETHANE CORE – dress form is made entirely of polyurethane. This makes it ideal for pattern making, draping an pinning technique. Polyurethane is a safe modern poly material also used to produce children’s toys, mattresses, sleeping cushions, etc.
✔ COMPRESSIBLE – the dress form is relatively soft, so you can compress it’s shoulders to put a fitted garment on and narrow it’s waist while trying a laced corset.
✔ MULTIPURPOSE – this sewing torso can also be used to display clothes and take photos of your design.
✔ ANATOMIC – our dress forms are accurately shaped and proportioned according to physical characteristics derived from relevant modern consumer data.
✔ DURABLE – you can steam and iron right on the dress form. All materials tolerate high temperature and water perfectly.
✔ STEADY – in this listing the dress form is shown with the metal stand and rotation retainer. It is very convenient to use for draping as well as for displaying your work. It allows for the torso height to be adjusted.
✔ HANDY – a magnet pin holder built into mannequin’s neck cap, construction lines, stand with wheels with stoppers and foot pedal, rotation and height adjustment tool: Sofia’s got everything a professional designer and tailor needs for comfortable and efficient work.
ABOUT THE DRESS FORM STAND:
Sofia can be purchased with or without a stand. If you already own a stand for a dress form and plan on purchasing a mannequin torso only, we highly recommend adding RETAINER/ROTATION STABILIZER to your order. Not only it will prevent Sofia from rotation on the stand pole, but will also guard it from tilting.
The stand Sofia comes with (if purchased as a set) has a steady, heavy (about 8 kg / 18 lbs) iron cast base. It has wheels with stoppers AND rotation retainer described above. The pedal is used as a temporary foot brake that keeps the dress form still while you’re working on it. The height of the dress form is adjusted manually by extending or shortening the telescopic stand pole.
Dress form stand is available in 2 colors: BRIGHT GOLD and MATTE BLACK
