Congratulations on your decision to shop around for a new dressmaker's dummy. Your sewing adventure is about to get even better!

Imagine if you could

Whip up all the dresses you've ever fallen in love with - in blogs, magazines, Instagram & Pinterest...

If Only .......

You already have a sewing assistant next to you - to help you with fitting - from start to finish.

Wouldn't it be good to have a body double - in your exact measurements - so that you can get the perfect fit - first time, everytime?!

If you're looking at this Dressmaker's Dummy, chances are...

  • You're learning to sew, and you need one for fitting & draping.
  • You sew for others, but struggled with fitting when they're not there in person.
  • You're making something special for yourself, and fed up with trying on half-pinned garments all day long!

You're not alone. Work-in-progress Dress fitting is fiddly (and full of pins) - but unavoidable. Because getting the right fit depends on it.

"I love this dress form.

Have always wanted one and here at age 70, finally got one (and I bought the best one there is).

The first thing I did was dress her and she looks beautiful! Pretty soon, I will be sewing just for her.... and my grand daughters.

Now I need one that can wear pants....."

- Jayne, a Happy Customer

What if getting your dress to fit perfectly was easier than you think?

Often the hard part is to come up with exactly the right tool, for the right job, at the right price. Of course, there is no doubt that in order to create beautiful garments, you need to practice.....

But the first step is having the right equipment on hand.

The Secret of Perfect Fitting is with an Adjustable Mannequin (that acts as your body double while you work).

Simply adjust the dials to your body measurements - then pad her up to reflect your shape because no two people have the same curves :-)

Here's a little bit of insider information...

Having worked for a decade or so behind the scene in the clothing industry, I was formally trained as a Fashion Designer - and later spent 10 years teaching others the joy of sewing. I like to share insider tricks, and I believe in doing things properly.

Now, let me share a little-known secret from behind the scene...

Store-bought sewing patterns rarely fit properly, straight out of the pack.

The best way to achieve perfect fitting is to simply make a "trail" garment in calico first, put it on the dummy, then complete the fitting by pinning and making adjustments. If you didn't have time to do this, at least check your pattern by pinning it on the mannquin first.

Taking the time to do the fitting properly on your mannequin is worth your while - because it will give you a custom-fit result, also avoid wasting time and  good fabric!

Think About it...

Most sewing patterns (such as McCall's, Butterick, Simplicity & Vogue) are made with the average population in mind.

But since when are you merely  average, anyway?!

How would store-bough patterns fit you any better - if you're having trouble buying stroe-bought clothes in the first place. Right?

By working with YOUR own body double -  you can be 100% Confident of a Perfect Fit - simply by starting with an Adjustable Mannquin that's been set up to replicate you!

So, How Does an Adjustable Dress Form Help?

A dress form will make garment making and alterations easier, more satisfying and more rewarding than you ever thought possible.

It's the only sure way of achieving a really professional look and a bespoke fit to garments, whether you're making clothes for yourself or someone else.

When the adjustable dressmaker's dummy has been adjusted to specific measurements it becomes a replica of you (or your friend, or family member... whomever the garments are for).

And that's why tricky tasks like pattern fitting, fabric pinning, tacking, setting in of sleeves and darts, and many more tricks of the trade can be carried out on the mannequin, avoiding the irritation (not to mention the waste of time) of constantly trying the garment on, and taking it off, and back on again...

Hey, making your own clothes is supposed to be FUN, remember?

Meet your very own Mannequin for Dressmaking....

Her name is Lady Valet.
("Nice to meet you..!" she says)

Sometimes known as dress form, even dressmaker's dummy
(awwww... we KNOW she's not dumb, even if she doesn't have a head)........
....... Lady Valet might just be the dressmaking buddy you need!!

And, Putting Your Lady Valet Mannequin Together is a Breeze....

This video was created by Virginia, one of our lovely customers, with a sweet note:

Hi there guys

Thanks for my order. My Lady Valet arrived safely.

I was so excited to receive My Lady Valet (a birthday present) that I put together a time-lapse video of the assembly. Then I had some bonding time with her :)

Watch the video If you feel like a bit of a giggle. Enjoy!

- Virginia Newton, East Geelong, VIC


An ideal sewing companion, Lady Valet is a fully adjustable dress form

She can help you with:

  • pattern adjustments before cutting,
  • better fittings and alterations, and
  • an opportunity to learn draping - just like they do in a real couture in Paris or Milan!!!

Sounds Exactly Like the kind of Help You Need?
  Why Not Get One and Experience it Yourself...!

"I purchased this dress form for my budding fashion designer daughter. She wanted the real thing and she got it!

I had considered a more solid, non-adjustable industrial version but for her purposes (basic draping, beginner pattern-making of her own designs) this adjustable style was perfect.

The assembly took only a few minutes. I was very pleased with the quality of the torso and the wooden base, given it is only a light-weight mannequin for domestic dressmaking.

The dress form is sturdy enough, height and size adjustable, and easy to pin to. My daughter was thrilled!

Of course if she grows out of this phase (which is highly unlikely), the dress form will serve as a stylish room accessory to display scarves and clothes.... oh I don't think she will stop shopping, even if she knows how to design and make her own clothes!"

- Lauren, a Happy Mum

Lady Valet has some nifty tricks to  help YOU...
Achieve  perfect fitting first time, every time!

Check out....

  • Lady Valet provides plenty of  precise adjustments at  greater accuracy, that's why she is chosen by so many professional dressmakers.
  • Her  twelve (12) dials make it easy to change the dimensions of the body, including settings at the neck for smooth collars and necklines.
  • Her  8 piece body allows for even distribution of measurements, for a realistic and flattering fit.
  • Fine waffle textured knit fabric / foam padded makes it  possible to pin your fabric and pattern in an angle, so you can always check to make sure you get a perfect fit!
  • Did you know that her  torso can be lengthened when a longer back measurement is required...? Just another secret for advance dressmaking!
  • Her neck is also fully adjustable with matching wooden finial in traditional style to complete the vintage look.
  • The lady has strength - made from a strong yet flexible plastic material, hollow on the inside for adjustablity, and covered in nylon foam-backed fabric.
  • Standing tall and proud with traditionally turned wooden stand - her height also adjusts to suit your height and accomodate for extra long gowns!
  • Lady Valet is available in 2 sizes (you're looking at a  Size Medium in this listing) - covering anything from size 16 to 22... petite to va-va-voom!
  • Her full shoulders are life-like and essential for a better hang to sleeves - which beats trying on half-finished garments with pinned-on sleeves (ouch)....!!
  • The  best looking adjustable mannequin in the market, Lady Valet is Craftsman-made with vintage charm - perfect in your sewing room or equally at home in any room.

Sounds Good?

Yes, Lady Valet comes from UK...
                                                     ...just like our lovely Lady Kate :-)

Unlike many other cheaper dress forms (mainly made in China), you will find ours MUCH better made...

That's because the manufacturer, The Adjustoform (A. E. Arthur Group), is the largest and longest established worldwide manufacturer of adjustable mannequins for dressmaking.... talk about being a specialist!

At the factory in Ashford Kent, England, adjustable dress forms are manufactured using the care and skills of over 40 years experience to offer customers adjustable dressmaking models of the highest quality, in a wide choice of designs, to suit every need.

Remember - You  do get what you pay for. Buy Well, Buy Once.


Do I Really Need a Dressmaker's Dummy...?

More to the point: Can you really do without one....?

If you're interested in designing and making your own fabulous outfits, a career in fashion / costume design, an income from dressmaking or alterations, or simply need to whip up a batch of bridesmaids dresses for a wedding (whether it is you own or for someone dear to you)..... you'll need a dress form.

A dressmaker's model is invaluable in garment making....

  • whether you sew for yourself or others
  • whether you are a beginner or a professional dressmaker
  • you will become quite attached to your new sewing assistant!

Would it Work for You?
  Why Not Give it a Go!


Think about what you can do with your own adjustable mannequin....

  • Check the drape of fabric. Is your fabric suitable for the pattern you have selected?
  • Style an outfit by draping co-ordinating fabrics together, to see how they would look for, say, a jacket and blouse.
  • Fit a tissue pattern straight from the pack, or one that you've drafted yourself
  • Check the placement of darts, pockets and buttonholes .... do they look right where they are? Be sure... because once they are there, you can't really un-do them!
  • Establish the position of collars and lapels. This alone will make a difference in whether your garment looks professional or amateurish.... and you know which one you want to be!
  • Position lace, trims, ribbons and appliques on garments. Embellishments should NOT take over.. they need to be just right.
  • Check or plan the placement for machine embroidery designs. Nothing worse than a badly placed motif or logo!
  • Pin sleeves in position, based on your shoulder length. Tack in place, then machine stitch. Easy!
  • Check the placement of shoulder pads. Old tailors do it for that tailor-made look. Now you can too.
  • Check the ease and hang of a lining. You don't want to get caught with linings too tight or too loose!
  • Fit and hang wedding gowns as you sew.... and same goes for formals and bridesmaids dresses too.
  • Pick out your completed outfit for work or play the night before, so getting ready to head out the door is totally stress-free (and you will never be late again because you won't have to decide what to wear last minute)...!

So the question is: Can YOU Really Do Without a Dress Form??

Why Not Scroll Up and Grab Yours NOW....!


You're looking at a
Lady Valet Size Medium

Her size range measures:

Size Medium (Dress Size 16 - 22)

Bust: 39'' - 47" or 100 cm - 116 cm
Waist: 29" - 37" or 74 cm - 94 cm
Hips: 40" - 48" or 102 cm - 122 cm
Please double check your own body measurement, instead of just going by "dress size". Because sizing differs from brand to brand and you want to make sure the mannequin you order is the correct one!

How  much easier would it be to take care of all the bridesmaids' dresses - all  different sizes - all  at once...?!

"I bought this for my wife who has been sewing all her life.

We assembled it in about 5 minutes with no problem.

My wife finds setting the adjustments easy, and done so that the form was exactly her size. Now all her clothes fit her perfectly!

I'm sure the form could be heavier and more padded.
However, for the money, this dress form is a real bargain."

- Steve, a Happy Husband


So, How Do I Make Adjustments on the Mannequin ?

Before you begin to adjust the dressmaker's model to specific measurements, expand the body by loosening all the adjusters evenly, in small increments at a time.

We suggest you make the adjustments, working from the hip level upwards.

This will release any tension on the body and will make subsequent adjustments smoother.

It will also help you to familiarise yourself with the operation of the adjusters (i.e. dials or wheels). These are for adjusting the measurements at bust, waist and hips.

Get to know your dress form... so you can make her look like you!

Adjustments are made by turning the wheels....
  • downwards to increase the size and
  • upwards to reduce the size.

Hot Tip:
As you adjust - always use a tape measure to ensure the measurements are accurate.

Ok... How Do I Take My Own Measurements in the first place?

Let's face it... we ALL know that a professional looking garment which flatters your figures can also enhance the image you present to the rest of the world, and how you FEEL about yourself.

To make sure you can achieve this, an accurate set of body measurements is essential, so that you can adjust your new dress form to as close a copy of your body as possible.

Ask someone to help you in checking and recording your basic body measurements. When measuring, pull the tape snugly, but not too tightly, around the fullest part of the area being measured.

Take the measurements listed below and note them on the diagram. Include your required length for trousers/pants if your model includes a trouser/pants making option.

Before making any specific adjustments (Fig 1), adjust the height of the model to ensure that the shoulders are exactly level with your own shoulder height (this is where help from a friend is particularly important).

Now, take some measurements of yourself (with a friend's help).

Remember to wear only your usual underwear when you do this....

These are the essential measurements:
  • Back Waist Length    Measure from the nape at the base of the neck down to the natural waistline
  • Bust    Measure straight across widest part of back, under arms and across fullest part of bust
  • Waist    Measure around natural waistline
  • Hips    Measure around fullest part - usually 17.7cm - 22.8cm (or 7" - 9") below waist. Make a note of the distance between waist and hips.

Can't Wait to Enjoy Perfect Fit?

Hot Tip:
Always select skirt or pants pattern size according to hip measurement.

(Because any necessary waist adjustment is relatively simple)

These are measurements you will probably need:

  • Neck    Measure around fullest part of neck
  • Skirt length    Measure from floor (wearing shoes with appropriate height heel) to your required skirt length.
  • Pants length    This is a personal choice. Decide on Capri, ankle or boot leg style, and measure accordingly.

Other useful measurements you are likely to need in garment making:

  • Sleeve Length
  • Shoulder Width
  • Shoulder to Elbow
  • Inside Pants Leg
  • Outside Pants Leg

What if I'm... umm, bigger in some areas...?

Easy, pad her up where you need to :-)

Your new dress model has been designed to accommodate as many and varied adjustment needs as possible.

However, there will be occasions when the model has been adjusted, but additional padding is required in order to achieve the accurate measurement in a specific area.

For Example - where bust and waist have been adjusted to the correct size, but the hip area needs to be adjusted beyond the capability of the hip adjusters, or, one hip is higher than the other.

There is a simple solution to this, and with the use of padding, you can achieve the required measurement so your dressmaker's dummy has YOUR exact shape and measurements!

I'm short-waisted. Is the torso length adjustable?

Yes - the torso length IS adjustable - though it can only be lengthened.

The shortest it will go is the way it comes in - it doesn't get any shorter. I'm also short waisted and have the same issue with torso length.

The solution is simple:
  you can pad the hip / waist area of the mannequin slightly so that the thinnest part on her is higher (if you know what I mean).

That way the distance between the bust and waist would be reduced to fit your own measurement. This solution works for a lot of people, including myself.

Tempted to Try?
  Sure - Just Add to Cart Now!

Hot Tip: For a REALLY accurate bust line - fit your own comfortable bra onto the mannequin and use padding to fill out the cups.

Use measuring tape, and add padding, until correct measurement and shape is achieved.

Here's a list of other ideas to try :

  • Hips and Bust - Use polyester batting, cotton wool, or foam to pad out certain areas. (See Fig 2 above). Then cover areas with a thin bias cut fabric and pin or tape in place.
  • Shoulders - If one shoulder is lower than the other, layer strips of polyester batting over shoulder area to build it up.
  • Waist - Use thin strips of foam, distributed evenly round the waist. Build up thickness until correct measurement is achieved.
  • Filling in the Gaps - If you have made widening adjustments to the model, attach a strip of wide tape or ribbon to fill in the open areas.
  • Cover - If you wish, you could make a stretch cover for your dress form to hide any padding you have added. Or, simply put a skivvy on her!

"I got back to sewing after a 7 year break (I had two kids in the meantime) and consider myself an advanced beginner.

I have never owned a dress form before, so I didn't want to spend a whole lot, not knowing how I would like dressmaking..... it turned out that I love it!

Even my husband commented how great a tool it is for checking that everything is straight and even all along the way.

I know that it can be a little wobbly, but it is also lightweight and easy to move around and store.

It is easy to adjust to your size, just take the time to keep measuring it with a tape measure to make sure it is accurate to your measurements.

I am really pleased with my purchase. The price was great and I know I am going to get a lot of use out of it."

- Tessa, a Happy Customer

  • A handy coat / hat stand in your hall way: convenient for keeping your favourite jacket in shape, and a unique way to greet your guest!

"I've always wanted a dress form ever since I took up sewing, but most ones were really expensive so i was very happy to find this one and it's adjustable too!

But don't go thinking that just because its cheap in price its cheap in quality, because I don't think so. It gets the job done and its easy to adjust. It's also padded so I can pin the fabric on it.

I really like how I can make dresses to fit me just perfectly and I don't have to try it on numerous times nor have my boyfriend help pin it for me!

I would recommend this to anyone interested in sewing... its really useful to have around and will save you lots of hassle."

- Sienna, a Happy Customer

When you try to do dressmaking or alteration WITHOUT a dress form to work with, you will find:

  1. A seemingly simple project takes forever to complete.... because you keep on putting it on (to check the fit), taking it off (to work on it). Not fun.....
  2. You end up unpicking a finished garment because you're just NOT happy with how it fits on you... and you have to start from scratch all over again. NOOOOO!!!!!
  3. Worse of all, it's very likely that you could run out of fabric, or patience, or BOTH!

So, What's a Budding Seamstress to Do?

Treat yourself to an Adjustable Dressmaker's Mannequin and Experience the Difference...!

"I purchased this for my 16 year old daughter who loves to sew.

Out of the box this is a neat little item to have in your sewing room. It is perfect for beginners and the adjustable forms makes it easy to design for several different sizes.

She uses it all the time and loves that it is adjustable and makes her sewing life so much easier. "

Any delivery time estimates shown are estimates only - so please use it as a guide line.

You'll receive a few email updates from our system as your order progresses, so please stay tuned on these!

That means your parcel may reach you by either Courier or Aust Post.

In general, larger items tend to be delivered by couriers, while small items tend to go by Aust Post.

How is my postage calculated?

Great question.

Other times we use the Built-in Calculated system provided by Aust Post, and your postage is calculated based on YOUR location.

Depends on the item (and its dimensions), because Aust Post have size restrictions and couriers are NOT allowed to deliver to a P.O. Box.

Please check with us when in doubt.

A phone number would help too - this will avoid delays.

What if I need my order urgently?

No worries, we will do our best. Just let us know.

Please give us as much notice as possible - especially for special occasions like birthdays!

In most cases, we CAN arrange an upgrade from Regular Post to Express Post for a little extra.

No. Sorry - unless you're picking up furniture directly from our supplier.

Because most of our items are located in a commercial warehouse - with NO public acess.

There is no shop front - because that's how we can pass on the savings to you!

Some useful things you might want to know:
    • Combined Shipping - We are happy to combine shipping for multiple purchases based on the combined weight and dimensions of your items, so add what you like to cart as you go, and check out our shop to see what else you like... you never know what you might find!
    • All items we sell are Stored in a Clean and Smoke Free Environment so You can Rest Asured they will be In Top Condition when they arrive at your place.
    • Packaging & Sending - All your items will be packed well and we do everything we can to make sure you package arrives safely. In the unlikely event something does go wrong with your package, please contact us via email. We do our best to resolve any concerns.
    • Prompt Shipping - Your package will be sent to you promptly once payment is cleared. In most cases it will be dispatched the next business day.
    • Packaging Materials - We endeavour to support "green policies" and recycle clean packaging materials whenever possible. Brand names on packaging material may not necessarily match the content.
The Courier Needs Your Phone Number

When you're completing check-out please make sure your best day time phone number is included - because the courier requires a phone number.

Generally they may never ring you -  and they tend to just turn up anyway. But their office needs to have your phone number on file for "just-in-case".

If you have any special delivery instructions, please let us know.

It is best to providing these details by sending us a quick message - this means your parcel will be dispatched to you faster.

Lady Valet
By: on 22 March 2024

Very quick delivery and very easy to assemble. Good quality adjustment mechanism, which is not only easy to use but much more unobtrusive than other mannequins on the market. The combination of the ecru fabric and the wooden legs makes her a stylish addition to the sewing room. Highly recommend.

Excellent product. Very pleased.

Ordered this dressmakers mannequin after using another product which was the wrong size for me in fairness. By comparison this mannequin is SO EASY to put together and adjust and it actually looks really nice too. An added bonus.

Lovely Quality

I've named her Lady Mary" :-)"

Just a quick note to thank you for your guidance and advice in buying the Lady Valet. I unpacked her last night and she is stunning. It was so easy to put her together. I have named her Lady Mary after Downton Abby as she reminds me of that kind of ROYAL Dressing up time. :-). She is a perfect match to my interior decor in my house (French provincial) so she has a special spot in my living room and I have dressed her up as part of me decor and when I work on her I don't have to move her around I can just put the garments on and then dress her back up when I'm finished. Thank you for great service I'm really looking forward to start working on Lady Mary! :-)
