Take the Mystery From Pattern Fitting
Have you purchased or sewn a garment that doesn’t fit? Likely the answer is yes. Well, we can’t have that happen! So, in this featured Sewing With Nancy episode, Solving the Pattern Fitting Puzzle, Part Two, Nancy shares that fitting patterns don’t need to be puzzling. Learning to fit sewing patterns is definitely a sewing necessity, but it doesn’t need to be complicated.
The common sense approach that she prefers takes the mystery out of the pattern-fitting puzzle. In Solving the Pattern Fitting Puzzle, Part Two, we’ll continue where we left off after part one, and show you additional fitting tips. By the end of this program, you’ll have the confidence you need to fit and then sew patterns with ease.
Nancy shares her Sleeve Fitting Changes, including measuring and altering sleeve width and length.
Then, she covers Shoulder Fitting Changes, including narrow shoulders, sloping shoulders, and square shoulders.
Next, move on to Back Fitting Changes—including swayback and rounded back.
Finally, finish up Solving the Pattern Fitting Puzzle, Part Two, with Skirt Fitting Changes including waistline and hipline.
Check out last week’s post on Solving the Pattern Fitting Puzzle, Part One, where Nancy covered the pattern fitting basics; bust, waist, and hip adjustments, along with the Right Size Measurement Fitting Chart (below).
You’ll find all of Nancy’s pattern fitting techniques in her book, Confident Sewing Collection.
