Pant Fitting Techniques online course by Sandra Betzina

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.

    1. To get pants fitting properly is really not so easy. It is good to start from evaluating your figure (all +’s and -‘s). The book Pattern fitting and alteration is very good. It shows difgerent figure issues and how to cotrect it. Maybe it would be better to join real course with hsnds on. I know a lot about pattern drafting, draping, pattern correction – still, wprking woth real models/people is a challenge. And I love it. Finding out how it works and why gives a lot of satisfuction. Success with your pants in the future. 🙂
