I have basic blocks with my measurements. Is there a (easy) way to use these to alter a commercial pattern so it will fitt me? I hope someone can help me with a comment?
Thanks for your trouble!!!

    While waiting for a respons I found some useful video’s on YouTube which I like to share with you :) I find them very usefull, and I use the video instructions in combination with my personal fitting pattern (Butterick 5746) which I have personefied as mentioned in the Butterick Pattern instruction. In the video’s they use ‘Sure-fit-designs’ but that is not neccecary !

    The video’s: Example1-Blouse-How to fit commercial Patterns with Sure Fit… link1: blouse http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DrRAMzViuaQ link 2: asymetric blouse http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BppMeRRuZwA link 3: jacket http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHmd97vitPc but perhaps somebody has some more information.

    Hi Maria, the blocks are only really useful if you want to make a pattern from scratch. If you’ve bought the pattern, the best thing to do is to do a basic rough outfit and remark and take in where you need to, and then alter the pattern. Sorry
