What is an Ideal Fit? | Threads Podcast

Episode 3 with Sarah Veblen explores how to define and find an ideal fitting garment.

Achieving a fabulous fit can be one of the most challenging sewing skills to master. To help surmount that challenge, consider the question, “What is an ideal fit?” before cutting a pattern or pinning garment adjustments.

Fit and design expert Sarah Veblen joins Threads editors for this latest podcast episode to tackle how to define and find an ideal fit.

Watch her in the Threads video “What is a Great Fit?” discussing what constitutes a well-fitting garment and how to achieve an ideal fit. You might also enjoy the Threads video “How to Make a Two-Piece Sleeve Pattern,” in which Sarah demonstrates how to compare the sleeve-cap length with the armhole opening and then how to remove unneeded ease from the sleeve cap for a better fit.
