How To Save Money On Store Bought Patterns

Many times it takes MORE time to alter a store bought pattern so it will hopefully fit than it takes to actually SEW the pattern.  We all have our particular “adjustment” areas — hips, waistline, bust issues, etc.   How often have you FINALLY gotten a pattern to fit right and actually look good, when the next problem is that you can’t make every garment the same!  Well, I have some good news for you!  You can take that one pattern and change the neckline and/or sleeve styles so that you can have a complete wardrobe of a wide variety of styles from just that one basic dress/blouse pattern.  Check this out…….

That SAME great fitting pattern’s basic sleeve can be changed to make all these different styles!  Easy step by step instructions for making the changes are also at

Not only will you be saving a bunch of money by using your great fitting pattern to make all kinds of garment styles, the above pattern changing classes are NOW on a special 20% off summer sale (use the promo code SUMMER) to get a whopping 20% off everything at the website – through the end of June.

And remember, if you’re having issues with your sewing machine (tension, timing, thread knotting in the bobbin area, etc), check out the information on our Sewing Machine Repair for the Home Sewer book.  Save time and money by doing your own sewing machine repairs and adjustments instead of having to take it to a repair shop.
