Tailor sewing patterns to fit your body shape for custom-made clothing.
Tailoring Patterns for a Perfect Fit
Achieving the perfect fit is one of the fundamental goals of tailoring. Adjusting patterns to match one’s body measurements can seem daunting, but is deeply rewarding.
Pattern Adjustment Basics
Starting with accurate measurements is key. Adjust the paper pattern by slashing and spreading or pinching to tailor to individual curves and lengths.
From my experience, the difference that tailored fit makes is substantial, both in comfort and appearance.
Take the extra time to adjust patterns for a custom-made look. It's well worth the effort for clothes that fit and flatter perfectly.
