I just had to repair manikin in knit suit and needed to photo her for my records so I thought I would share this little group of Sewing mannequins from 20 inch to 15 inch size . All came with patterns to learn to sew during WWII to help in war effort . These were all made by Latexture Products NYC and used Simplicity patterns . The difference in quality of 2 that are same is very noticeable . The one in Blue is lesser quality than the one in knit suit. The Lesser quality one is most often one found . The one in knit suit for instance has a separate thumb and much nicer matte finish . The one in pink gown is not common to find . These are not dolls but no category for teaching items
Thanks for stopping :-)

    Love this collection. My fav is the pink one too.
  30. Manikin Manikin, 1 year ago
    Thank you Wandlessfairy . I guess she is winning hands down , my favorite is in knitted suit because she was a early model and beautiful matte finish and fine sculpting but the one in pink is rarer :-) Thank you for stopping
  31. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 1 year ago
