About In-House Patterns
Fit and Ease
In-House Patterns are designed and developed with minimum ease for a sleek and fashionable fit. Review the Size Chart carefully and choose your pattern size accordingly. If your measurements fall between the sizes, choose the larger size, make a test garment, and tailor to your perfect fit.
Special attention has been given to fit an average figure with a full bust. The In-House average figure with a full bust is considered to be an hourglass shape with a "D" bra cup size. Don't worry if you don't feel you fit into this category, styling and design can be very flexible and I am happy to answer any questions about altering patterns for fit.
Seam Allowances and Construction Techniques
I strive for a completely professional looking finished garment and seek to avoid that "home sewn" look. In order to achieve this, IN-HOUSE Patterns seam allowances and construction techniques are not the same as many other home sewing patterns. IN-HOUSE Patterns are developed using industrial construction techniques which require very specific seam allowances. This makes sewing easier and saves you time and fabric. All of the information and assembly instructions are included with the pattern and have been adapted for your regular home sewing equipment.
Sewing Skill Level
While IN-HOUSE Patterns can be quite easy to sew, it is assumed that
our customers have previous sewing experience. Having a solid knowledge
base in sewing vocabulary and skills will ensure greater success in
achieving a professional looking finished garment.
