Topics covered will include:
- What to do if your measurements span two or more sizes on the pattern
- What to do if you are taller or shorter than the pattern has been designed for
- What the differences between vintage and modern patterns are How to select appropriate fabric for your pattern
- What all the symbols on the pattern mean and what to do about them
- Plus lots more.
