i liked her written info, and i have a much better understanding of how patterns 'work' now that i can see how you alter them.
what is frustrating me NO END right now (i'm trying to sew the shirt):
- no fabric yardage is suggested anywhere in the book.
- the patterns go from size 2 - 18 i think. but only in 4 sizes. So i am cutting a 'medium' which (it is unclear about the actual size of a medium) is somewhere between a 34.5" and 35.5" bust. and i'm 34". so i know i'm going to have to alter it quite a lot.
i just dont understand why she doesn't have ALL the pattern sizes, only four imaginary non-standard sizes?!
Can some one explain the no yardage suggestions? I want to make the skirt, but I have no idea how much fabric to buy, I am a total newbe when it comes to sewing.
