Meet (beginner) Rebecca...

Rebecca is a novice seamstress in both sewing as well as fitting.  Rebecca was given a sewing machine, but really didn't know much about using it.  As she learned a few sewing skills and tried simple patterns, she realized that fit was going to be one of her biggest stumbling blocks. In her search to find patterns that would fit her, she discovered Sure-Fit Designs.  Many of the blog entries will be about 'Rebecca's Journey' into fitting and the obstacles she faces both in fitting and in sewing.

You'll want to 'stay tuned' as her journey makes multiple twists and turns with surprising results.

Your First Sewing Memories...

As Rebecca struggles with learning sewing construction as well as fitting, it should remind all of us what our first sewing experiences were. 

I invite you to submit your first memory of either a sewing project or a sewing event that was significant in your learning process.  It could be something humorous, something you're proud of, something you learned, a mistake that you'll never make again but can laugh about now (we've all had those)!

Please email your story/recollection of the project or event.  I'd love to post them on this new blog.  We all can comment and learn from one another.  If you have any photos or funny cartoons or a current personal photo, please submit them too - a picture is worth a thousand words!

A Customer Comment...

I Have Been Totally Blown Away!

I drafted a bodice, made a toile, re-measured myself correctly...I could never understand why the waist had to be measured using a piece of I know...I was absolutely excited about the fit!

Working with the SFD Designing Stylus was a breeze.  It's so easy to understand and use.  I'm simply blown away with the simplicity of this fitting system.

I'm so impressed with these patterns.
