Measuring Made Easy Measuring Tape Set
15% off Discount Code – MeasuringMadeEasy
This month we are featuring the Measuring Made Easy measuring tape set which is designed and produced by a fellow San Diegan, Lorraine Henry. We have known Lorraine for a long time. She has a degree in Home Economics and has taught for many years. Her specialty lies in the areas of Fit, and she will be a guest instructor at our Pant workshop webinar this month.
So, what is unique about Lorraine’s measuring tape set?
The primary thing is that The Two Easy Tape has a ‘0’ (zero) in the center of it, which allows easy measuring for Front vs. Back and Left vs. Right measurements.
In addition, the Companion Inseam Tape can anchor on the Two Easy Tape, so that you can easily measure your Inseam measurement while you are taking your crotch length measurement. … and there are other uses as well.

We have included some of the questions that were asked during the recording used for this video
This video includes 40 minutes of fashion trends overview and 30 minutes of demonstration of using Garment designer to build 4 garments, inspired by the fashions seen in Kyoto and Tokyo, Japan. Review current trends in Tokyo and Kyoto, Japan. See what is in the store windows and on the street. Then, using Garment Designer, learn how to build patterns for some of these garments. We will stretch your mind by choosing garments that are creative in their design and/or require a slightly different approach in Garment Designer.
If you alter patterns, or want to draft them ‘from scratch’, Susan will teach you the basics of armhole and sleeve combinations. Understand how changes made to the armhole affect the sleeve and enjoy learning how to draft/create a multitude of sleeve styles. Garment Designer will be used to demonstrate examples.
