Often times, a sewist has purchased a new pattern and the conventional wisdom is to make a muslin from the pattern. Once the muslin is made, where do you go from there? Once you’ve made your standard fit adjustments to the pattern/muslin and you’re still having drag lines or fit issues, how do you solve them?
Well learning to fit new patterns by using your TNT patterns helps to resolve a lot of your fit issues. Why? Because you have already solved your fit issues with your tried ‘n true pattern so using it as a basis for a new pattern, gives you a head start in the fitting game.
This web seminar recording will show you how to make the new pattern pieces fit by using your tried ‘n true pattern as the starting part. You will see how to increase or enlarge pattern pieces. You will learn where to add seam allowances. And you will demystify some of the fitting process through this webinar. This webinar is for the advanced beginner to advanced sewist who wants to learn a new way to fit patterns.
This web seminar recording is for the sewist who has a tried and true pattern that you’ve used at least 4-5 times to make a garment from in different fabric types. You should be comfortable with this pattern and ready to slice and dice it and use it for fitting purposes.
