Hello all your homework for this week is to create a pants front and back using personal measurements and incorporating the adjustments that were deemed necessary for a better fit. Once the pattern is done you are to create a second mock up using the altered pattern. This is the secondary fitting, some of you may end up with a perfect fit some of you may have to do one more, the mock ups will tell the tale. This is completely normal to create two or three, sometimes even four mock ups before ironing out all the issues. In a class of 12 only 1 person did not have to make any adjustments to their pattern using their own measurements to begin with. Imagine the difficulty in trying to find a pair of pants that fit off the rack made by using generic measurements what are the chances of finding a pair that fits well? I think there a better chance of winning a lottery than finding pants that fit the female body well!
Have a great week!
