Dear Fellow Sewers,
I am in need of detailed information on ease. I not only need to know the amounts of ease needed in typical areas, such as waist, underarm, hip, etc., but also the amounts of ease for tight fitted, semi-tight fitted, loose fitted, and very loose fitted. In addition I would like to know the amounts of ease each different pattern company does. I understand that the following pattern companies have their own dimensions: Burda, Butterick, McCall’s, Simplicity, and Vogue. I would greatly appreciate the titles of any articles or books in which I might find this information. And perhaps we might suggest to Threads that they write an article on this topic in the future!
Sincerely, Carol Tutor
