I have one that fits that size - sort of. You have to remember the dress dummies aren't shaped like real people and the only time I use mine is to take pictures of my dresses or display them at an event. It is not worthwhile buying if you think you can use it to actually make a dress to fit your dd's actual, in my opinion. The one I got I think was a Dritz and had "petite" in the name of it.

The dritz child form or the petite form would probably work (depending on her exact measurements), but I have yet to find a dress form that is shaped like a pre-teen. The childs form is odly square, and the petite form is too curvy. It can be helpful for pictures, and to check skirt hang, but isn't much use beyond that. (NT)imhoSunday, December 15, 10:40:11am

If you're just making a dress for your daughter, can you not use her as the model? Much easier and cheaper, and the right size! (NT)!Sunday, December 15, 09:58:43pm

I saw a post on dance.net where they made their own using paper and duct tape. (NT)Worked a treat!Thursday, December 19, 10:42:31pm

If you use the child or petite size, you have to pad the form to match her curves. I just pin strips of muslin to the form. (NT)a dmSunday, December 29, 02:03:31pm
