Thank you for your comments, emails and phone calls regarding my rant on the sloppy styles! You made my day! Maybe we can start a style revolution!This inspired me to search for some good basic classic patterns that I think might work for most of you to help give you some ideas on what to sew and how to sew them to achieve the most professional results. I plan to add my own sewing tips. techniques and suggestions to each pattern so it will be a mini sewing course in itself. I hope to develop a good "Classic Pattern List".
How do you like that idea? Tell me your thoughts!
If you have a good, well cut pattern that you recommend, please let me know so I can test it out and add it to our "Classic Pattern List".
Now think about this!
Most of us wear just a few styles on a regular basis. It is our "uniform" so to speak. Look for sewing patterns to duplicate that look. Get your fit worked out in those few patterns and then just cut and sew to your heart's content. Imagine! You just might use up some of that stash that you have.
It really is a lot of fun to sew when you know the garment will fit without trying it on, ripping and restitching a dozen times.
Stop struggling with a new pattern every time you make a pair of pants! Get a basic pant pattern perfected for your shape and then learn how to change the design (not the fit) to create any other style pants you might ever want or need. Don't confuse "style" and "fit"!
Even if you gain or lose weight, your crotch basically stays the same. And, if you were lopsided before, you still are! You may just be more or less wide, but still the same shape!
You know how to let out or take in a side seam. It's the curves, lumps, bumps and tilts that cause your frustration! Everyone has a different combination of those. You just need to find out what yours are and how to accommodate them so your garments can hang "on grain" on your body. Then the wrinkles and pulls disappear.
My Common Sense Fitting Method will help you get the best fit. Try it! It just makes sense!
I am here to help if you need it.
