  • Patent number: 4592496
    Abstract: A pattern form having adjustable members mounted on an upright post. The adjustable members represent the neck and shoulder region, the bust region, the waist region, and the hip region of the person for whom a garment is to be made. The neck and shoulder member can be adjusted as to size of the neck and the width and the angle of droop of the shoulders. The bust, waist and hip members can be adjusted as to the size and shape of the waist and hips. Pattern elements of pellon material are mounted on the adjustable members after the members have been adjusted to the size of the person for whom the garment is to be made. The pattern members define outer surfaces on which conventional tissue paper patterns can be pinned in the making of a garment. Changes in the adjustment of the adjustable members can be made to compensate for changes in the size of the person from time to time.
