A Sure - Fit
By Glenda Sparling, Sure-Fit DesignsTM


Sewing is one avenue to cut basic costs and still have what is needed. A sense of personal pride and accomplishment is often the ultimate reward in a home sewn garment.

Another important reason why many people sew is to achieve a personalized fit. Everyone has a unique physique or figure and ready-to-wear does not always accommodate your individual needs. Sewing a garment to your individual requirements can not only give you a better fit, but also give you individual fashions that are not seen on 'every rack, in every store.'

The market place has responded to this increased demand for information and updated technology to make our sewing easier. New sewing products and methods are constantly being developed to help the home seamstress save time and money in her home sewn projects.

Sewing machines today truly make 'light work' of many tasks. Computer technology has added memory to some of the newest sewing machines, which allows them to make perfect buttonholes every time, write names and slogans for your 'own' designer look, adds machine embroidery to your children's clothes, and can stitch, overcast and trim a seam all in one motion.

There has been a fundamental change in how home sewers use patterns today. Traditionally, the seamstress went to the store, purchased a one-sized pattern and then needed to take it home and make it FIT. The tedious process of slashing and spreading the pattern or overlapping and pleating, then trying to determine if the changes would then suit your figure, took up much of her precious time.

Today, we can see advances in pattern technology and systems for achieving an infinitely superior fit to those of our pattern ancestors. Patterns now can come in multiple sizing so that you can individualize to your particular figure. One such system is Sure-Fit Designs TM.

The basis concept of Sure-Fit Designs TM is that everyone, no matter your shape or size, can get perfect fit and beautiful clothing with a minimum of fuss of headaches. This system is the outgrowth of new directions in the pattern industry whereby home sewers have the opportunity to work with a pattern system that can literally fit all sizes and offers a multitude of current fashions and styles.

An overwhelming positive response to this system has occurred as Sure-Fit Designs TM can save the seamstress valuable time and create a custom fit pattern quickly and easily for any family member.

Learning how to create personal designs that complement your particular body shape and many new shortcuts can help cut the cost of clothing construction, and give you the latest fashions.

This innovative system is the hallmark of Sure-Fit Designs TM.
