No matter what kind of look you are aiming for, whether it’s trendy, casual, business-like or sophisticated, there is no question that your clothes are only as good as the patterns that created them.
We all know it is very important that you possess clothes that suit you well in making a statement about what you are made of. However, most of todayís clothes use easy commercial patterns that do nothing but block what it takes to make you truly shine.
If you are like some people, you’ve probably tried your hand at sewing modifications, but if you’re like most other people, you are probably just wearing your clothes as they are.
But it really doesn’t have to be that way. How about learning sewing and pattern making 101 so you can mix design particulars into the precise style you are searching for? It is time for you to seize control of the closet.
Really, it is not necessary for the fashion and style industry to dictate what you should wear. The fashion industry does not know what style fits you best, so don’t go around chasing fashion trends, youíll only lose your self-respect that way. Weíd rather you make your own designs and begin your personal trends.
What people see when they see you should reflect what you are inside. Too many times, however, people settle for a look that is off the rack.
Try to be different and enroll in a dress making class, where you can learn everything related to making clothes, from the design, fabric selection and proportion. You will also learn about the basics of pattern making.

But of course, you can only learn pattern making and apply what you learned for all the clothes you buy. There are many courses and tutorials on the internet that teach you how to make patterns after your own body.
Itís really not as difficult as it sounds. In fact, you can say that the process is extremely user-friendly. You make use of a fitting pattern at the local fabric store. Youíll sew a version in muslin cloth and adjust it to suit yourself perfectly, then copy the pattern to create your very own pattern block.
After that you can make use of your block to create your personal sewing designs, adding style lines, flare, collars, pockets, and other details to produce whatever new styles you want. You are able to rely on your block to custom-fit any piece of clothing to your body. If that doesnít sound exciting, we donít know what is.
