Why you should make your own patterns

Are you still struggling to find clothes that fits you well and that’s your style?
It’s simple, learn how to make your own patterns and sew your own garments. Once you know how to make the basic patterns you can  create any design of your choice, and the best part of it all is that you’ll know that these garments will fit you perfectly as it was made on your own individual size.

Pattern making is very forgiving, you can always change the style or tweak a pattern or the size according to what you want. Firstly, you have to test your pattern by cutting it out on inexpensive fabric like polycotton or any solid fabric that you can get hold of. Professional designers use calico to make up their samples.
Once you have tested the pattern, you can now decide whether you want to make changes to the design or fitting. Thereafter you can cut it out from the chosen fabric and confidently sew the garment.
We usually ask our pattern making students to bring in pictures of designs they like so that we can teach them how to create these designs from the basic patterns. With a bit of practice these results can successfully be achieved.
