These female mannequin forms have been carefully designed to to echo the tailoring of the vintage French Stockman and Girard mannequins.
The sloping seams at the hips, the panelling to the back and the handstitched final seam are all typical of vintage and antique tailoring.
An enormous amount of time, care and attention goes into the careful fit of the fabric covering to ensure it hugs the mannequin torso tightly. A number of fittings are required before she is ready to have her final seam hand stitched, or her corset lacing tightened.
Traditional Tailored Back Finish
As with all vintage mannequins (and also modern dressmakers models, such as market leaders Kennett & Linsdell ) the hand stitched seam runs down one side of the mannequin. This ensures that the finish is smooth and unobtrusive, allowing the tailoring to the back of the mannequin to be a feature in its own right.
Corset laced Back Finish
In addition to the traditional hand stitched side seam, a corset laced back finish is also available for your decorative mannequin. These mannequins are laced with high quality, double sided, satin ribbons.
