Issues with dress form
Hey everyone, a bit of a long shot but I'm having some difficulty with my dress form in that the upper arm area and shoulder continuously overlaps rather than resting next to each other at that joint. To prevent the problem previously I just had the mannequin at a larger size than what I would need, but it's not really ideal when my costumes end up looking baggy at the back and there isn't anyone with me to help pin and shape it correctly. I don't currently have the manual with me but I've had this issue since day one. I've also tried adjusting the neck but that just pushes the different panels out to the point that they may pop out of where they're supposed to be.

It's a Supa-fit dressmaking model (adjustoform)

Any help at all would be appreciated as I want to use it to the best of its potential and make some epic costumes.

Hey, I'm afraid I don't have a specific solution for you, but it's worth remembering that even though you can adjust certain points on a mannequin, they're still not going to be specifically shaped to you. In the theatre a lot of the time foam ends up being stuck down on top of mannequins to give more of a correct shape, but it really depends on the area in question. Maybe have a play around with something like that? Hope you can figure something out! If not, then see if you can get someone to help repin things and fit them to your person before you sew it up? :]

Yeah I'm trying to track down some fluffy padding so I can add it on to the booty of Albert (female mannequin, but was on a Resi hype at the time and it kinda stuck) to deal with it until expo is done and out of the way I got someone to hold the joint back in place then put on a tonne of ducktape to hold it a little more securely before I get my dad to have a look at it. It was worth a shot to see if anyone else has had similar issues before.

Thanks for taking the time to read and respond though!
