My adjustable, store bought dress form and I had the same measurements, but not the same shape. So I made a try in individualizing the dress form.
I made a shell out of fabric and with my basic bodice block, which I fitted to my own body. Then I covered my dress form with that shell and stuffed the space between the both.
It didn’t work out perfectly, but the new dress form I got from the process reflects my size and shape much better than before. And I can put pins and needles into it.
If you are interested in the detailed process, you can read about it on my blog: Marie in the cave
