Another new and exciting stockist has arrived at Emporia this week – the incredible and sewing-world renowned Adjustoform!
Giving you the chance to create amazing fitting clothes either for yourself without having to persuade someone else to do the pinning whilst you wear your creations, hoping they will do a reasonable job. Or if you’re sewing for someone else, then you don’t need to have them constantly on hand to be able to fit their clothes to them as you can use the dummy instead.
Coming in a variety of sizes that adjust their shape to replicate yours, these handy models can make the difference between endless pinning and tacking and resewing, and simple, easy fitting and creating. The model we’ve currently got on show in the shop is the Lady Valet, priced at £160 for either a small or a medium, and even though it’s the most basic model it will still adjust in 12 different points to replicate your body. Other benefits include using it to hang clothes to keep them in shape whilst you undertake a long-winded sewing project, and it’s old school style and traditionally designed polished wood stand and matching neck cap.
If you want to take things up a notch with your dress model, take a look at the SupaFit standard and deluxe editions. These forms come as either a four or eight part dummy, which again can be tailored to fit your own measurements as an aid to accurate fitting. The body is split at the waist to assist fitting for those with longer or shorter waistlines, and it features 12 adjusting wheels, an adjustable neck with useful pin cushion, a foam-backed nylon covering which allows easy pinning and marking, strong tripod stand folds for easy storage, and hem marker or hem leveller options. You can also get a male version of this model too.
The prices for the SupaFit deluxe models start at £130.00 and go up to £145.00 for the full figure; and the SupaFit standard starts at £120.00 for the petite and goes up to £135.00 for the full figure.
