Equipment for making corsets and wedding dresses

Let's go over the necessary equipment for successful dressmaking.

First things first - the essentials:

Sewing machine (home or industrial)  

It's preferable to use an industrial lockstich machine. We recommend the JUKI brand. But you can use any household sewing machine as well. If you don't have an expensive industrial machine at your disposal, it is absolutely unnecessary to buy one from a start.

Professional dress form with collapsible shoulders is preferable, we recommend the "PGM Dress Form" brand. But it is not necessary. Any simple foam dress form will work, especially if you are at the beginning of your journey and looking for a budget-friendly options.
