I have a huge problem with fit, and would like to make all my clothes. However, I am very short, and have recently lost weight so that now everything is hanging on me. Believe me when I tell you that nothing in my wardrobe fits properly; everything must be altered as best as can be.
I have tried making alterations on storebought paper patterns using Sandra Betzina’s book, but there seem to be too many overall changes needed to make it fit correctly. The computer design programs seem to target an average height/weight female, and I’m wary of throwing my money in that direction.
I want to make my own patterns, but there are no local dressmaking classes. I am 4’8″, 95lbs., 47 yrs. old, and tired of looking like a ragamuffin. Any input will be most appreciated. B.Raines
