Let your dress form mirror you
32-page step-by-step guide to adjusting your custom Bootstrap Fashion dress form pattern.
The Bootstrap Fashion custom dress form patterns are amazing, but each body is unique, and some adjustments might be needed to make sure that the finished dress form mirrors your body. This guide applies to Bootstrap Fashions custom dress form patterns (Missy Fit DIY Stuffed Dress Form Body Replica Made To Measure Sewing Pattern & Curvy, Plus Size DIY Stuffed Dress Form Made To Measure Sewing Pattern.

For this guide to work for you, you need to have filled in all the Fit Adjustments on the order form.
Otherwise, the apex and bust height is going to be wrong for you anyway. Also, make sure you follow their guidelines for taking measurements very closely! I’d also highly recommend getting the pattern without seam allowance. The guide is in English. The guide does not address any changes above the bust line, as these measurements are usually correct from the start. If they are not correct, you need to contact Bootstrap Fashion as it is probably something that is incorrectly measured.
When you have finished your pattern, I strongly recommend that you do a mockup first in a cheaper fabric to see that everything works and is correct. Depending on your changes, there is a risk that you will need to adjust some seams and other details.
