Our new Mini Mannequins are finally here, the smaller sister to our half size dressforms. We have been working with this for some time as we have been experimenting with their digital pattern blocks which we are providing with the mannequins along with some really handy extras on a USB drive. Below are the details of our new ladies.

  • The Mini Mannequins are fully pinnable.  
  • Our ladies outer covers are a 95%Cotton and 5% elastane mix.
  • The beech wooden stoppers are detachable so you can add different top covers.
  • Chest 30 cm
    Waist 23 cm
    Hips 30.5 cm
  • Height from nape of the neck to the base is 43 cms

Along with the Mini Mannequin we are providing four sets of paper basic pattern blocks for you to work with and adapt. We are also providing some extras on a USB drive to help introduce you to digital pattern creation.

Contents of the Mini Mannequin USB Chip

PDF patterns for the bodice, skirt and sleeve basic blocks.

PDF pattern for the mannequin stretch cover.

PDF booklet with some useful pattern alteration exercises. 

SVG Pattern files for the bodice, skirt and sleeve basic blocks.

SVG ePatterns are editable versions of the basic pattern blocks. SVG files or ‘Scalable Vector Graphics’ give you the ability to re-draw and edit your patterns in programmes such as Inkscape, (Free from https://inkscape.org/) and Adobe Illustrator amongst others without the loss of resolution. We have provided both Inkscape SVG and plain SVG files on the USB drive
