Patterns & Sizing


A block pattern is a custom-fitted, basic pattern from which patterns for many different styles can be developed. The photo on the left is an example of this.

The photo on the right are ready made patterns that have average sizes in particular styles. I can custom make a pattern for you or work from a commercial pattern of your choice, to fit every possible taste and occasion.

Grading is used to increase or decrease a size, based on an average difference between sizes.  If your body shape isn’t an average size , it can be so difficult to find clothes that are the perfect fit and flatter your unique body shape. 

Alteration is used to make a particular size conform to an individual’s personal figure challenges.  

My passion is for my customers to be feel great every time they put on a garment that is altered, designed & custom-made for you.
