Make your Own Display Mannequin. sizes 6-12months, 1-2 years, 3-4 years and 5-6 years.
Taking photos of my creations on flat backgrounds or on hangers at the back of the bedroom door were not capturing their full potential and so I decided to create an affordable mannequin.
This pattern will give you 4 sizes to create your own mannequin. This model is intended for display purposes only not a measurement sewing model. Even the smaller sizes have been shaped with 'hips' intentionally to give skirts and dresses a slightly fuller look.
If you regularly display shorts there is also the option of putting the casing on the back.
Materials required Approx 80cm (1 yard) fabric (smaller sizes use less) Thread string to use as a drawstring Filling Dowel, broom handle, pole Stand You are purchasing a pattern and not the made model.
This mannequin pattern is a dream come true. I have struggled for two years when trying to photograph the baby sweaters that I crochet. I have posed the sweaters in dozens of ways but they never look as good as I want them to. With this mannequin my designs and photos are going to have a professional look and I know my sweaters will sell better......BTW.....this mannequin is very easy to make. I made the first mannequin in a beige cotton fabric and stuffed it. I then made a few more covers in different fabrics that I can just slip over the stuffed mannequin so that these different fabrics will highlight my designs better.......If you have any difficulties send a message to Tigerlily and they will respond in short order............THANK YOU TIGERLILY......
