Fitting Sewing Patterns – Our Fitting Surgery online!
Are you unhappy or frustrated with the fit of your garments but unsure why? Don’t despair, this will all change after our Fitting Sewing Patterns Course.
We will cover:
Taking accurate body measurements
It all starts with accurate body measurements. Commercial patterns use the bust, waist and hip and a standard body measurement chart. Jane takes twenty-four different measurements explaining why and how they affect fit.
Understanding your body shape
Patterns are usually cut to a standard figure (the hourglass) which doesn’t suit or fit other body shapes. When you understand which body shape you are you will find it easier to choose a style of pattern for you.
Choosing a sewing pattern
We will look at different styles and pattern manufacturers, standard measurement charts including the independents.
