These 3 wonderful images of dress forms are from
the early 1900’s and were sent to me by
This one was in an ad in a 1911
“The Modern Priscilla” magazine and
is a Hall-Borchert adjustable dress form.

I’ve removed all of the background from it,
so if you use programs like Photoshop or Gimp,
you can layer it over other images, like this.
The next two images both came from a 1913
“The Modern Priscilla” magazine. The backgrounds
have not been removed from these images.
This one is is also Hall-Borchert adjustable form.
The image on the left is in black and white and
the one on the right is the original color tone, if you want the aged paper look.
This dress form was a Venus adjustable dress form
sold by the Acme Sales Co.
