In a perfect world, all figures would be alike – in perfect form. In the real world, we come in all shapes and sizes. Learn what comes first in selecting the right size, what measurements you need, conduct measurement analysis to determine where and what to change for a “combo pack” figure, and much more. Then using half scale practice patterns we will alter patterns for such figure combinations as a short midriff which requires the pattern to be shortened but a rounded back which requires the pattern to be lengthened. We often find opposing figure variations such as this. Learn the order to make these changes so the fit will be correct.
