I’m not very good at looking at a pattern and deciding whether it will be good for my body type. As a paid service I’d like to be able to put in a dozen measurements, height, bust, waist, hips, back length, maybe even thighs, inseam, etc. Have a professional determine my body type. After paying for that service I’d like to have each pattern show what figure types it works for, square, hourglass, triangle, inverted triangle. I’d like it to show that if you’re top heavy, this is/isn’t a good style, or that this pattern disguises a tummy, that another pattern can be adapted if you have longer than average arms. I think all that sort of information would be very helpful. One of the problems with sewing your own clothing is having to guess whether a pattern will suit you. Then you spend $$ for fabric and hours of time only to find out that you look terrible in the dress when it’s completed.
