Learning to fit sewing patterns is definitely a sewing necessity. If clothing you’ve made or purchased doesn’t fit, you’re not going to wear it. Well, we can’t have that happen! So, in this new Sewing With Nancy episode, Solving the Pattern Fitting Puzzle Part Two, you’ll learn that fitting patterns doesn’t need to be puzzling.
The common sense approach that I prefer takes the mystery out of the pattern-fitting puzzle. In Solving the Pattern Fitting Puzzle Part Two, I’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.
I’ll share my Sleeve Fitting Changes, including measuring and altering sleeve width and length.
Then, I’ll cover Shoulder Fitting Changes, including narrow shoulders, sloping shoulders, and square shoulders.
Next I’ll move on to Back Fitting Changes—including swayback and rounded back.
I’ll 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 I cover the pattern fitting basics; bust, waist, and hip adjustments, along with my Right Size Measurement Fitting Chart (below).
You’ll find all my pattern fitting techniques within my book, Confident Sewing Collection.
