Use accessible techniques to customize patterns for your thighs, and make adjustments for a perfect fit in the seat area. You'll even learn how to adjust patterns for swayback posture. Finally, Kathleen will help you refine darts or add extras for a waistline designed with you in mind. Make every pair of pants and skirt you sew a wardrobe staple with custom fitting techniques!
Meet your instructor, Kathleen Cheetham, and discover the types of alterations you'll learn how to make on commercial patterns to get the perfect fit in skirts and pants.
Using the sizing guide on a commercial pattern is just the starting point, and it might even be the wrong one! Kathleen shows you how to measure for hips and get the right pattern size, then jumps into making the most critical adjustment for well-fitted pants: the crotch depth.
Whether you're dealing with hips that are wide and low, narrow and high or anything in-between, Kathleen has guidance for you. Even asymmetrical hips won't pose a challenge when you're done.
