Fitting Solo: From Measurement to Muslin
Discover how to measure yourself on your own with expert sewing instructor Linda Lee's easy-to-follow techniques. Start by finding the correct pattern size for your body and taking accurate measurements. Then, make basic pattern adjustments and evaluate fit using muslins. From there, you'll lengthen, shorten, narrow or widen a top pattern while keeping the seams correctly aligned. Once your adjustments are made, you'll create a fitting muslin, mark alterations and apply them to your pattern. Stretch your skills as you fit a pair of pants by changing width, knee placement, and both stride and total length. Ensure your pants will be comfortable and flattering by making adjustments to your muslin and pattern. Plus, see how to apply the same fitting process to a skirt pattern.
