Taking a Breath!

(Belated) Happy 4th of July!

To all of our US sewing friends, I hope you had a pleasant Independence Day holiday.

As for us at Sure-Fit Designs, it was a much needed break - June was such a hectic month!


PS. Make sure to download the email images...

What' New?


Time for a breather!

June was such a hectic month.  First there was the ongoing effort to finish the new pants designing book - Pants that Mix 'n' Multiply.  Second, we had the June 15 Live Chat with all that it entailed to get the transcript live and up on the website.  And last, but definitely not least, was the completion of Pants that Mix 'n' Multiply.

As a result, preparing a totally new July newsletter simply wasn't in the cards.  Thank you for your understanding.  August will resume with a focus on Shirt fitting with Sure-Fit Designs.

Skype Address:

In an effort to keep in touch with all of you – helping you with your pattern drafts and the designs you choose to make – I now have a Skype address. This is going to make it so much easier for me to actually ‘see’ some of the questions you might have.

First of all thank you for the time you spent with me on Skype going over my sloper.  Since then I have made a dress, a top and 2 pairs of capri pants for myself and a shirt for my husband.

My husband said that this shirt is the best he has ever owned.  it fit so well.  He wore it to a party and got so many compliments.

I was amazed at how my capri pants turned out.  They did not need any adjustments at all and fit just perfectly.  It is so great to know that I can make a pair of pants and know they will be perfect. 

My second pair, which I made this afternoon in about an hour and never even tried them on until they were finished, were just perfect.

Thank you again....
