Have you ever made a garment that didn’t fit?

What was it – the back was too tight, the shoulder was too long, not enough room at the bust, too much at the waist, or all of the above?

All this time and resources wasted cutting and sewing a muslin that was flawed from the start. Multiple fittings follow to fix all the fit flaws, until you get fed up and eventually give up. Sewing for other people is simply out of question, you are not confident enough in your sewing skills.

How do the professionals do it? How do they manage to see the client 1-2 times and produce a beautifully fitting jacket or trousers in such a short time??

I can tell you how. I have sewn numerous garments for myself and clients with minimum fittings. I even sew clothes for a client in another country, with no fittings at all!
I didn’t learn this overnight, of course. Like you, I had a long time struggle with ill-fitting, unwearable clothes. I, too, have a dozen or so books on measurement taking – each of them has different approach, in some way incomplete and often leaves me with more questions than answers.
The frustration pushed me to study and compare all these approaches and develop one set of measurements that works for me every time.

I have been sewing for over a decade and made more custom clothes than I can recall.
Only thorough understanding of the measurements gave me confidence to start sewing for other people.
Without a doubt, getting this fundamental skill right will result in:

  • Better patterns
  • Beautifully fitting garments with less effort
  • Less disappointments and UFOs ( unfinished objects )
  • Boosting your confidence as a dressmaker
  • More time to explore the creative side of dressmaking
  • Better understanding of your figure will allow to choose patterns that suit you best
  • Less money wasted on styles that are plain wrong for your figure
