UPDATED! Print friendly digital file!

Flat Pattern Alterations Workbook is a 22 page PDF file that walks your through the basics of altering a woven sewing pattern with only the information provided by the pattern. Bust, Waist, Hip, Length.

It is meant as a guide for sewers who know how to make clothing but always get discouraged when the finished project (that they slaved over!) fits a little weird.

This workbook is very fun and very informal! I did not have the space to get into in depth step by step tutorials and the specifics of trueing. If you are a beginner you should treat this as an outline for what you need to learn about basic alterations.

There will be a Trueing Workbook coming soon though! Also Keep an eye on my website for more detailed tutorials.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

This zine is everything! I've always struggled to visualize garment alterations--the why, the how, they where just boggles my mind. Eyetrade's diagrams are really brilliant and are helping me understand these things in a way I haven't come across before. She breaks it down in a straightforward way that makes sense to my visual brain. This is definitely something I can apply to all kinds of patterns and project ideas and help me take my sewing to the next level. Thank you Eyetrade for helping me see things from a different perspective!

This workbook is SO handy! It's helped me feel much more confident in my understanding of pattern alterations and I can't wait to tackle the projects that, until now, I've been too nervous to try. Definitely recommend!

I liked my first two Crista's so much that I had to get another for my wardrobe. It's a really comfortable style and I like how the different fabrics work together with the piecing on the front. I definitely recommend these! :)

So cute! Received just as described - added a funky touch to my updo on new year's. While definitely a statement look, these earrings are light and didn't pull on my ears or hurt throughout the evening. Hope there are more nostalgic variations to come!
