Pattern Making Basics
Who here struggles with the pattern making basics?
Hands up if you have read the books, followed YouTube videos, or even just tried figuring it out on your own?
And it’s a struggle right?
I get so many emails from my readers who say that they really want to be able to create clothes that fit but are struggling with just the pattern making basics.
And that just doesn’t seem fair right?
Reasons For Learning Pattern Making Basics
You see, these readers of mine – probably not unlike you – have many reasons for learning pattern making basics.
Here are just some of the reasons…
“The lack of RTW clothing options is comical”
“Finding clothes that fit is really hard”
“I don’t like trying on clothes”
“I got fat, and clothes I like don’t fit me, or are hideously expensive”
And the best reason:
“To actually have something that fits perfectly!”
Your Perfect Pattern
So, because of all the emails and all the reasons I heard, I started to create a course. It was going to be called Your Perfect Pattern and was supposed to be released in July.
Yet Your Perfect Pattern grew bigger and BIGGER, until I realised that I was adding TOO MUCH INFORMATION inside it. It was overwhelming ME to create it, and it would definitely overwhelm anyone who bought it. You see, the point of Your Perfect Pattern is to give you the skills to create your own idea of a perfect pattern, not melt your brain with information overload! 😉
So, for the time being Your Perfect Pattern has been shelved while I focus on providing this epic free email course on Pattern Making Basics, and setting up my paid membership community for pattern making obsessed women.
Pattern Making Basics Email Course
So, I chopped a lot of information from Your Perfect Pattern, pared it right back to teach the essentials, and decided to use all the pattern making basics info to create a free email course! *Boom shackalacka!*
The email course did really well – over 1600 students have worked through it in the last year – but I also found I was spending a lot of time filtering out span emails from my email service provider, as they were pushing up the cost of monthly plan. Now, I’ve implemented a £5 fee for the email course, and it can be accessed from my members area here on the website! Exciting! Check out the lesson plan below!
