Abstract

A dress form is an essential tool in the clothing-making process for pattern block development, draping and quality inspection. However, it is noted that a single dress form is not applicable for a large variety of body shapes. Adjustable dress forms are readily available and some make their own custom-made dress forms in an attempt to make up for the insufficiency of conventional dress forms. However, such types of dress forms are rather costly and their effectiveness is debatable. With this is mind, a customised adjustable kit for the dress form was developed, with the aim to cover different body sizes and shapes more precisely. The kit adopts 3D printing technology which enables generating and changing the shape of components efficiently.
