You will also learn how to add the additional pattern parts such as a collar, front extension, facings or bands, and pockets. Design and construction tips will be included as well as inspirational ideas. The goal is that you will understand the process so you can create your own unique vest pattern with success.

A little knowledge up front goes a long way to fit and great looking clothing. In this lecture/demonstration, you will learn how to take meaningful and accurate body measurements. Then, we will take it one step further to discuss which parts of a pattern (whether knit or sewn) are impacted by proper and improper measurements. You will gain a greater understanding of why some patterns work and others don’t, and you can apply your knowledge to correct patterns, based on your measurements before you even cut the fabric or cast on stitches.
