While you are reading this I am busy baking breads and cookies to share this holiday season.
It has been a rough year for everyone – even my cats are confused!
I wanted to share another service that Lucky 7 Studios offers to our customers and clients – custom patternmaking with personal instructions! Yes, that is exactly what I said – if you are a sewer – we can make a custom pattern using your measurements – I know that is Crazy!
The overall process is well…. Here let me explain …
My mother has this dress that she absolutely LOVES! She is a sewer and could not find a pattern that matched that dress. We scoured the internet and looked at all the big name pattern companies and as many small independent ones I could find. We could not even find anything similar to her dress. She was sad to say the least.
She knew I made patterns and custom clothes – She asked me of I could make a pattern using her dress. I said “of course” – this was going to be easier than recreating something from nothing.
So she sent me her dress in the mail – COVID and all…. What follows are the general steps to complete such product/service. (There will be more photos at the end)
- Step 1 – evcaluate the garment to setermine the number of pattern pieces
- Step 2 – take measurements of everything – more than once.
- Step 3 – begin to draft the pieces
- Step 4 – verify their accuracy to measurements and to the garment
- Step 5 – Determine seam allowances
- Step 6 – Draft final pattern pieces
- Step 7 – Photograph and upload each piece
- Step 8 – Complete the instructions for client/customer (this is a LONG process)
- Step 9 – Ship pattern & instructions to client, including the Lucky 7 Studios label
This same process can also be done from a sketch, an idea you have, a photo of a garment that you love, or many other things. Your measurements and the idea are all that are needed to get started!
