Sewing tips and tricks

I have been reluctant to purchase a commercial pattern because it looks overwhelming with all the diagrams and lines. Gah! Silly, I know. Other than that my reluctance stems from being confused on how to resize a pattern.

As I’ve been researching various websites online, the recommendation is that you measure yourself and pick the pattern size based on the predetermined sizes listed on the pattern. I, along with many others, don’t fit the perfect mold for these predetermined sizes.

My quest for answers brought me to a website which has great instructions on how to resize a pattern.

Jennie Chancey also has tips of resizing for petites (yay!).  Review her other tips as she has additional useful information.

Cheers!
