Ensure before insertion that the legs are the correct way up, as shown on Fig.C. Make sure that each leg is fully pushed into the base. Turn the stand over and check that the feet rest flat.

Assembly of the Form
Before placing the Torso onto the assembled Stand reposition the Height Adjuster (Item 5) fitted onto the top section of the Stand, at the required height. Place central Pole inside Torso over the top of the Stand and lower Torso into place.

Back Length Adjustment – 8 Part Models Only (Fig.E)
Adjust to the correct back height by loosening the black slide (Item 7, Fig E) and pulling down the bottom of the Form to the required measurement making sure that the waist-line is kept level. Retighten the slide to hold in position.

Adjusting the size of Supa-Fit and My Double type Dressforms
Bust, Waist and Hip Adjustment (Fig.G)
These adjustments are made by turning the adjusting wheels downwards to increase the size and upwards to reduce.
There are three sets each of four wheels, and the sets are positioned at Bust, Waist and Hips.
Adjust each wheel a little at a time equally over all needing adjustment until each tab shows the measurement required against the sides of the sections of the Form, inches on the right and centimetres on the left. (See Fig.G where wheel is adjusted to 36 inches 91cm.)
Check measurements with tape measure and make fine adjustments as necessary.
At some settings, tension in the model may make a wheel difficult to adjust. This can be overcome by increasing the adjustments immediately above and/or below it. This releases the tension enabling the wheel to be adjusted to the desired measurement. The other adjustments can then be returned to their correct settings.

Next, programme your waist and hip measurements onto the front dials in the same manner. Repeat with the dials on the back and then the two sides. Check measurements with tape measure and make fine adjustments as necessary.
At some settings, tension in the model may make a wheel difficult to adjust. This can be overcome by increasing the adjustments immediately above and/or below it. This releases the tension enabling the wheel to be adjusted to the desired measurement. The other adjustments can then be returned to their correct settings.
