Garment Designer is easy to use and powerful. Yet, strange things can occasionally happen as you work. Where did my sleeve go? Why is the left side different than the right, etc. Rest assured, there is a logical reason why. So, if you are not a ‘manual’ reader, or simply want to cut to the chase, let us show you the most common mistakes people make and explain the why. Having this knowledge tucked into your belt will give you comfort to do more. Susan is pulling form her tech support files as well as her design experience for this webinar.

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.
