Every wardrobe needs that versatile garment that can take you through the seasons with slight changes or additions. Lindsey Marsh starts with making a wardrobe to flatter and fit your unique shape by creating a muslin and how to choose the pattern and grade between sizes. Then Rebecca Kemp Brent shows how to transform your wardrobe with embroidered pendants and fabric beads.
Lindsey Marsh from Sew To Grow is a Texan turned Aussie by way of marriage. Her delightful pattern line includes some great looking classics that would be suitable for a wide range of figure type and lifestyles.
In this segment she uses her Bondi Top Pattern as an example for pattern fitting variable sizes. She calls it a tic tac toe of sizes, meaning the bust, waist, and hip measurements do not fall on the same cutting line throughout the pattern.
In this show she walks you through the process of measuring your body, then connecting sizes on the pattern, and finally shows how to make a muslin for a trial fit. You'll find details in her instructions, along with a free download for her personal measurement fitting chart HERE.
