I followed the Pant Fitting Techniques online course by Sandra Betzina on Craftsy hoping to find solution for all my fitting issues. After the first two parts (introduction) I was enthusiast. Sandra was showing different ‘real’ people wearing pants indicating fitting issues. I have seen my issues there as well.
The basis of the course is the pants Vogue pattern 2948. There are in total 9 lessons during which Sandra is showing some patterns alterations on this pattern.
I am sure Sandra has great knowledge of pattern fitting however I did not like the way it was presented. I would prefer not only to see what/how/where to alter but what are the results of this alteration on a real person. This I was missing. I had a feeling I was reading a book with pictures.
That’s true – you can find few handy tips/advises but generally it was not so useful for me.
I will probably by the Pants for Real People: Fit and Sew for Any Body book and will read it over a weekend.
Wait… first I will again retrace my pattern including last adjustments and make new muslin after I buy new tracing paper and muslin fabric.
