    I'm thinking of buying a dress form.
    I'm long waisted and I'm wondering if any of the lower priced forms have an adjustment dial for length of back?

    They usually sell these at Joanns. I'm short waisted, but the last time I looked, at least the medium range of dress form (not Barbie) would have worked for me.

    Thanks for the invite, it would have been fun to meet you, but I'm 100s of miles from you :cry:
    I guess I'll have to go to a diff. Joanns and see if they have any dress forms on display. The one nearest me only has them in boxes.

    Ask Joanns if you can open one of the boxes and set it up so that you can check to see if you can use it. Tell them if it works you will purchase the one you open. Good Luck.

    I have instructions for making a dress form that is formed from your body out of duct tape. If you would like it, I can email it to you, just PM me.
