It’s all about the Math! Watch this video. It tells about how your body parts are mathematically related! Then, it applies this to pattern making. This is the Lutterloh System, but I remember mom purchasing this a LONG time ago under the name of “Perfect Fit Patterns.” The concept is taking a tiny pattern and using your bust and hip measurement to make it your custom size. Note, you are taking your bust and hip measurement to make the pattern. This doesn’t take a lot of things into consideration — especially the petite/tall factor!
I am attending a Tru-Fit seminar at Hancock Fabric on Monday evening. It uses this system, and I am interested in how they might address this fitting problem.
