I’m a beginner sewer who is very petite. 5"3, Bust: 30, Waist: 23, Hip: 35.5. I’ve noticed many patterns on here aren’t specifically for petite women. Do you recommend that I alter my patterns? (if so, do you have any links or advice) Or should I use the pattern size that closest to my true size, sew, and then alter? (if so, do you have any links of advice for this)
Is one way better or easier than the other?
