How do you develop confidence in fitting your figure?
Denise says, “First, ignore the size printed on the pattern envelope and sew for the real you. Sew test swatches to familiarize yourself with difficult fabrics. And sew test garments from fabric you’ll really wear, to check pattern alterations, style, and overall fit before you get to more expensive fabrics.”
Denise has experience in professional alterations, costuming, quilting, and teaching sewing construction. She lives in Janesville, Wisconsin.
