Patterns are worked in the round. The mannequin head is created in two parts: the head and a bottom section which is sewn on with yarn after stuffed.
The newborn mannequin dress form & the Adult size dress form are created in two parts: the body and then a bottom section which is sewn on with the yarn after stuffed.
YOU MUST USE FIRM COARSE DRY FIBERFILL TO STUFF WITH TO ACHIEVE BEST RESULTS. LIGHT FLUFFY TYPE WILL NOT ACHIEVE A MANNEQUIN HEAD THAT WILL BE STURDY AND STABLE ENOUGH. I USE FAIRFIELD CRAFTERS CHOICE THAT SAYS IT IS A COURSE DRY FIBERFILL (Morning Glory Premium Polyester Fiberfil works great too).<<<<<<<<<<<
YOUR PERSONAL GAUGE WILL AFFECT SIZE: CHECK YOUR GAUGE
FAQ: Can I use some type of weight inside to stabilize?: Answer: I find it not necessary to weight the completed mannequin head or mannequin dress forms, however you are welcome to experiment: I just can’t confirm your idea would work or not as I have created the pattern to be made with the materials listed. The mannequin head is fairly stable and sturdy if you use the firm coarse fiberfill and pack it tightly inside the completed head. Sturdy type of medium worsted weight yarn also helps to provide the mannequin head needed structure.
These are my original patterns. Please don’t alter this pattern in any way and/or copy, or reformat it to sell as your pattern.
