This cute dress form mannequin is sized precisely to fit BFC, Ink Doll Clothes! It is perfect for displaying some of your favorite outfits or draping a new design!
You can use a variety of medium weight fabrics for this PDF pattern. If your looking for a sturdy form, canvas and twill will work great. To achieve a designer display look, try a fun print or pattern. If you find a fabric that seems a little lightweight for this project, simply iron-on some fusible inter- facing to all pieces to give it the needed stability. To top off our form, we used an acrylic bead. The base is made from a wood candlestick we painted. These supplies can easily be found at your local craft store or online.
This size dress form also works well to display 16" A Girl For All Time clothing items.

I enjoyed making this, the instructions are easy to follow and fairly easy to pin and sew. Turned out nice and I will be making another. Remember to make sure your printer settings are correct as I printed to 'fit page' not 'actual size' and it printed smaller Doh! Use that 1" measurement guide on the page to double check.
The dress form pattern is fun and functional. I like princess seams much better than darts and all of the curved seams go together very smoothly with a minimum of pins and no resulting tucks on the finished seams. My only issue was finding the candle sticks at the craft stores in my area. I did find a provider on line and ordered six from them. Since I only have and need one doll of this size, it is exceptionally nice to have dress forms on which to display outfits. Thank you
Well i thought this was for an 18" doll so was disappointed. Guess I better read more carefully before purchasing.
