Lutterloh Pattern Making Systems

Is there anyone else satisfied with the Lutterloh Pattern Making System? I haven’t tried it yet, but was wondering if any else has and is it better then the systems taught at colleges and design schools?

    Dear Karen, Concerning the Lutterloh System -- tried
    a number of the designs, but found I still neede to
    fine tune the fit (as I do on any pattern). What is
    interesting, the vest pattern, which is the sample
    pattern they give you, fits fine! Have not heard
    anything about them for a number of years, did not
    know they were still active. I feel it is worth a
    try! Let me know what you think, Marianne.

        *Karen,I bought the Lutterloh system a few years ago. I guess I wish I hadn't. The problem is I don't like very many of the styles offered, and the "patterns" are so small, that extending the lines straight outward is difficult. It might work better if you would blow up the "pattern" on a copy machine before you try to make your own "personal" pattern. I made a pair of pants with one of the patterns a few years ago. It was a disaster, although it did work out well as a pair of early maternity pants! I also think, since i have learned quite a bit about sewing over the past few years since I made them, maybe they would turn out better now. Lutterloh is still doing presentations here in my part of Europe; I saw a flier again recently. I guess I would not recommend it to a sewer who isn't confident with some altering, and I would recommend you check to see if you like the Lutterloh style before you buy.

          *i recently attended a Lutterloh seminar. Personally, I think it's a ripoff.
