Draping: Finding the right dress form

3:20 PM

*** UPDATE (2/15/10): I went ahead and purchased the PGM Pro. I bought it on eBay from PGM Pro. It was less than $400 and the shipping was FREE! I'll do a post about it as soon as it arrives!

While reading my draping book, I realized that my Twin-Fit dress form ain't gonna cut it! I'm going to need a pinnable form.

My first choice is a professional type, like the PGM Pro:

I'm not going to lie. I scoffed at the $400 price tag and kept looking.

I've seen a few sewing bloggers use the Uniquely You Pinnable Dress Form:

This one is $139 (with free shipping at AllBrands.com) which makes it really attractive to me. Another plus with this one is it comes with a tan cover, NOT this Pepto-Bismal pink one.

If you drape, what type of dress form do YOU have?
