Pattern fitting is not that difficult to learn if you are interested in altering existing RTW patterns or learning to eventually start drafting your own patterns. Fitting a pattern to make it fit your unique body shape makes your clothing look like it was professionally made for you.

Peggy Sager of Silhouette Patterns, has a TV series now available for free on YouTube named Fit2Stitch. Season 1 Episode 1   There are seven seasons online and she takes you from the very basics to advanced skills for pattern drafting your own designs.
