This is not just a pattern, it's a drafting system, so once you own this, you can draft yourself a pattern IN ANY SIZE (from a 20 inch bust to a 69 inch bust). Whether you want this garment for a doll or a plus-sized person you will be able to make this fit perfectly.
* The template for the garment pictured above
* The miniature pattern pieces and the ruler you'll need to draft up the full sized pattern
* Detailed instructions on how to turn the template into a perfectly sized pattern
* Instructions on how to make specific adjustments to make sure this fits just right.
These patterns were designed for housewives to use, not professional seamstresses, as such they don't assume a lot of specialist knowledge. The patterns are kept as simple as possible, and only assume a general knowledge of how garments go together. That said, the "general knowledge" that a vintage housewife had about sewing is probably much higher than the average today! :)
If you can look at a pattern and identify what the different pieces are (tell the front of a blouse from a sleeve, for example), and if you can draft yourself a waistband or cuff (sometimes these very simple pieces are not included) you should have no problem with these.
They don't come with a "sew piece A to piece B" set of instructions because the pieces themselves are so simple it is very obvious how they go together.
The drafting system is so simple a child could do it. There's no complicated math, it is literally "Join the Dots". The patterns are totally scaleable, and can accommodate from a 20 inch bust up to a 69 inch bust - so you can buy from the adults' sections for dolls or children and vice versa. If these sizes don't accommodate your needs, please message me.
Just like patterns from "The Big Four" (or anywhere else) some people will find that these fit beautifully straight away and some people will need to do some adjustments. Information on some useful/common adjustments is included in your purchase.
