Buying or making clothes can be very stressful and difficult. Sometimes there is literally NO standard size that fits properly. The clothes end up too big here, too small there, darts too high or too low, shoulders just don’t fit right, and so on. Pattern making is the answer to the problem! Why make patterns? The answer is very simple – you will be using your own measurements or the measurements of the person you are wanting to sew for, therefore all the garments you make will fit those particular measurements. This book begins by covering the basics of pattern making – how to take the measurements, then using those measurements to make the original bodice pieces, how to make collars, sleeves and various necklines you can use to make an entire wardrobe of blouses and shirts. We will give you a wide variety of blouse styles; however once you learn and practice the basics, you will be able to draw patterns that you see in pattern books, clothing in department stores or an item of clothing that you want to design for yourself.
