Paper pattern fiting, this is a must watch video!

I've always been fond of the products and information
 I've gotten from Palmer/Pletsch

Melissa Watson has online this great video
on Paper fitting.  

The Lutterloh patterns are prefect for a paper fit!

Learn to Fit with Melissa Watson: McCall's M6989 Dress

The other really great thing in this 30 minute video 
is she does a princess line large bust 
adjustment in the video, one of the more complex adjustment.
You won't have the great Palmer/Pleitch adjustment lines
However you can add them yourself easily. 
Enjoy

I just re-watched this paper fitting video
aren't we lucky we can paperfit our Lutterloh before we add
the seam allowances!  
So many people who sew don't have helpers to fit them.
I don't so I set up my camera and take a photo of
each step.  Yes it takes longer but it works.
I can look at the photos on my camera so I do,
"oh I see I need a sway back adjustment"
(I'm going from the video)  
I take off the paper I make the adjustment and take another 
photo to see if I took the right amount.  
I do this for all adjustments.  I works!

Remember!  Once you make these adjustments you 
remember the amounts and use that adjustment in most 
all of your patterns. 

WARNING!
Don't paper fit out your ease!  
That's how you move in a garment
&
That is how fashion happens.
