Solving the Pattern Fitting Puzzle, Part One
Do you ever shy away from sewing fashions, since getting the right fit may seem daunting? Don’t worry—you’re not alone. During the next two Sewing With Nancy episodes featuring the new show, Solving the Pattern Fitting Puzzle, I’d like to share with you my favorite pattern fitting techniques that are easily mastered without cutting the original pattern pieces apart!
Fitting sewing patterns can be approached as if you’re putting together a puzzle. In Solving the Pattern Fitting Puzzle, Part One, I’ll cover the fitting basics; bust, waist, and hip adjustments.
See how to easily measure and choose a basic pattern size.
Then learn how to change the pattern with simplified pivot and slide techniques.
You’ll find all my pattern fitting techniques within my book, Confident Sewing Collection.
Watch Solving the Pattern Fitting Puzzle on Sewing With Nancy online. Then, tune in next week for Solving the Pattern Fitting Puzzle, Part Two.
