It’s time for Day 3 of the L 890 Airy Top & Comfy Dress Garment Sew-Along! Previously we downloaded, printed, and assembled our patterns, so if you’re just joining us now, you can find that post here.
In today’s lesson first I’ll be walking you through choosing a size. This is one of the most important parts of the garment sewing process. If you don’t take accurate measurements, or measure in the wrong places, you won’t end up with a garment that fits! After we’ve picked out our size, I’ll be giving you my top 5 tips for making pattern adjustments, and showing you how to blend between sizes and lengthen and shorten your patterns.
I’ve included the measurement charts below since you’ll want to reference them when picking your size. You’ll want to choose the size that corresponds with your measurements. Most of us are going to fall in between sizes or into multiple sizes, and that’s totally normal. I’ll walk you through what to do in this situation with ease!
So that’s it for today’s lesson! In our next video, we’ll be cutting our garments and then we finally start sewing!
