Lutterloh method of pattern making

drdeez | Posted in General Sewing Info on

Has anyone used the Lutterloh method of pattern making? It sounds intriguing. I just watched their video online and it looks easy.

    If you search you will find very resent (negative) discussions of this method.

    I have a Lutterloh system that was given to me. The person that gave it to me said  that she only used it a couple of times. She paid $140 for it in the early 1990's, but I think she also got additonal stuff like mats and cutting tools. I haven't used it yet. The patterns included are very eighties. I know you can buy new patterns for it, but I haven't bothered. Personally, it looks like a major pain to deal with. Unless you are exceedingly difficult to fit, you would probably do better with altering/adjusting pre-made patterns. I have only a couple areas I always need to adjust so I just modify ready made patterns. I really don't want the additional work of creating an entirely new pattern unless it's my own original design. It's like reinventing the wheel.

    I have only just found this topic!

    I have started using this method and love it! Both my daughter and I hard hard to fit. The big 4 are too hard..........too many alterations to make it enjoyable!

    I am loving Lutterloh! even the pants fit! without too much fiddling!

    but you have to know how to sew as there are no directions! and you have to measure carefully as well!

    but its worth the hassle for me as nothing I have fits this well!

      Thanks so much for your response. I am still contemplating a purchase of it.
