Pattern Makeovers

All you need for the Pattern Makeover classes is a basic "store bought" sewing pattern with a fit that you like -- it doesn’t matter whether it’s a Simplicity, McCalls, Butterick, or something else, simply a pattern that you have finally gotten to fit right. As with all of us, now that the pattern fits properly, you probably won’t want a whole wardrobe of the same thing. The Pattern Makeover classes will show you, step by step, how to change the basic standard round neckline, or basic sleeve on the "store bought" pattern into different flattering styles that you can use, and make every garment DIFFERENT, using the same "store bought" pattern. Whether you're using petite size patterns, average size patterns, plus size clothing patterns, or super plus size clothing patterns, these online sewing classes will help save many dollars while making a very fashionable wardrobe.

D Bloss writes "You're right, I do have my one favorite pattern that fits very well; however it only has a couple of neckline variations and one sleeve style. I purchased your "neckline" and "sleeve" classes, and now I use just this one favorite pattern and have made dozens of different styles. This is so much fun, and the best part is that I know every garment will fit just right! Thank you so much for offering these classes!"

Pattern alterations are simple when you use our easy step-by-step instructions and the results are so good, you’ll wonder why you haven’t done it sooner.

In addition, why buy special maternity patterns when you can change the pattern you love and know how it fits into a wide variety of maternity styles as you convert that pattern into maternity garments.
