Say bye bye to badly fitting sewing projects!
Have you ever found a great pattern in just the style you were looking for. Paired it with the perfect fabric. Measured and chose the size according to the size chart. Cut the fabric, sewed for days and then
- There are weird folds above your butt
- Your tummy sticks out like you are 5 months pregnant
- Everything above the bust sags, but the bust line is about to burst
And you just feel wrong, misshaped and ugly and that you will never, ever sew for yourself again
(but you do love sewing…)
I know how you feel. I’ve been there.
But that was before I studied, practiced and learned fitting. When I started sewing I thought that I could just sew up a garment from a pattern and then it would fit me. And sometimes it did. But as I grew older, my body changed, and apparently it wasn’t shaped at all like the patterns were. (It still isn’t). Back then I took a lot of classes on fitting. And I learned something new in every class. But it wasn’t until I also learned design and drafting that it all came together.
You can learn to fit your garments, too. And you don’t have to take a zillion classes, or a design education like I did. Because it doesn’t have to be complicated or difficult.
You just need to learn the Foundations of Fitting – understanding why the fabric looks like that on your body and what you can do to the fabric – and the pattern – to make it look good.
The best way to truly understanding fitting is to try it. And then practice. With this book you get a FREE skirt fitting pattern to practice on.
I want to help you. And that’s why I’ve put together this e-book, Foundations of Fitting – a practical approach, that teaches you, yes, the practical step-by-step guide to fitting. In this book I have taken my experience from teaching hundreds of fitting workshops and compiled in into a 39 page e-book (with accompanying videos) that’s easy to understand and implement in your own sewing and fitting process. This book – first in the series – is about skirts. But the techniques are the foundation for fitting any garment. So learn on the skirt – use the skills you learn on any garment.
The e-book (with the FREE skirt fit pattern) will teach you the foundations of fitting.
✔ You’ll learn how to get a muslin ready for fitting so that it aides you in the fitting process (fast, we don’t want to waste a lot of time on this).
✔ You’ll learn how to recognize the signs of the most common fitting problems
✔ AND you’ll learn how to fix them. Step-by-step.
You can work through the book and learn, really learn and understand, why your sewing projects don’t work out.
And even better: You will know how to fix it, so your projects now work!
✔ No more cutting expensive fabric while still worrying that the garment will fail.
✔ Confidence in fitting new patterns because now you know what to look for in the fitting process
✔ Great new clothes that makes you look and feel awesome!
Here’s what you get:
- The 39 page e-book that teaches you the foundations of the fitting process – making guesswork a thing of the past. And giving you something sturdy to build all your fitting knowledge upon.
- 1 well drafted skirt fitting pattern
- The 5 most common fitting problems for skirts and how to fix them. (These are the fitting issues I see every time I teach a fitting workshop. And yes, mostly it’s just those 5..)
- Ten (10!) videos that guide you through the techniques and alterations in the book, so you know exactly what to do and how to do it.
Right now this can get your book for just 30 € (- that’s about 33 US$)
(Which is about what you would spend on a project that doesn’t work!)
