How Pattern Making Made Easy Came about…
Several years I had a friend ask me to help her develop a modest swimsuit line. She had the drawings but not the technical knowledge to create the patterns. I made the patterns for her and she went on to launch her line. At the same time, I began offering pattern blocks in the Let’s Learn to Sews Shop. The pattern blocks quickly became a hit but I also received a lot of requests for help altering the designs and questions about how to design other patterns. I added a section to Let’s Learn to Sew about pattern making. Many of my readers contacted me with the same comment “You make pattern making so easy!” In order to keep Let’s Learn to Sew focused on sewing, I created Pattern Making Made Easy.
Where Do I Start?
That depends on what you want to learn. I do suggest starting with some of our basic articles about pattern-making tools and terminology. I do my best to keep things simple but if you are new to pattern making you may find some of the terminology and tools unfamiliar.
I hope you find our articles, tutorials, and resources helpful. If you need help please feel free to leave a comment or reach out to me in the private Facebook Group. You will need the password to join which is: patternmakinggroup. The group is free but does require a password for your membership to be approved. This helps me keep down the spam.
