Working with a commercial pattern, learn to fit a tissue pattern to your body. This starts with knowing the correct size to cut out, and many women are in the wrong one. Once you have your size, cut out your pattern, pin it together, and watch the magic happen! Need more bust room? How about a shorter bodice? Do you have trouble getting a sleeve to fit? The Palmer/Pletsch tissue fitting method has worked on thousands of bodies of every size and shape, and will give you the confidence to move into creating beautiful garments that fit YOU!
