3 Things You Need To Create Unique Fashion Sewing Patterns

     Do you want to create sewing patterns on your own? Due to the advancement of technology and new inventions in the sewing industry, now it is possible to do so even if you are not very good at sewing. There are a lot of high precision tools available to make your job easier.

All you need to do is select these tools wisely and your job will be done! For this you need to have three basic tools: a good fashion pattern making system and two curves that will help you get the best out of this system. So are you ready? Letís begin.

Fashion Pattern Drafting System

It is not a very wise decision to try and create your own designs from scratch particularly if you are a beginner. The fashion pattern making system like Lutterloh consists of several diagrams suitable for various garments from which you can make your own full fledged designs. The book The Golden Rule is a must read if you want to get the best of your fashion pattern making. This drafting system was first invented in a town in Germany in the early 1930s.

This drafting system has been made exclusively for home sewers. So if you are not an experienced sewer, then the Lutterloh is meant only for you. On the other hand, if you know how to sew, you can always benefit more from the Lutterloh as it has some unique features that you will not see anywhere else.

But getting a drafting system is not enough; you also have to be able to use it to your advantage. For this you will need some fashion pattern making curves. There are two main curves in this field; the Designerís Curve and the Tailorís Curve.

Get the Right Design

Getting hold of the right pattern is not enough; you have to ensure that you cut the designs properly. The Designerís Curve is the perfect tool for this job. Its front and back arm hole make it a really easy and effective tool to get the right design. The best of these curves are made in acrylic and have international standards. This is why it is used by designers around the world.

When you are purchasing one however, it is better to do a little bit of research as any companies produce this curve and you should compare their price and durability before spending money on one.

Get the Perfect Fit

Getting the right design is not enough however. If you have a very nice dress material and the right pattern to go along with it, you also need to fit the pattern in the dress. The Tailorís Curve is used for these purposes. It has seven rulers in one.

Particularly the inseam and the crotch and hip curves are the best features of this curve. This curve is also used by the best international designers. It is a must have if you are new to sewing. It adds a professional touch to your dresses.

These are the three main things you need for making sewing patterns. However in addition to all of this, you also need a sewing gauge. So get on with your curves and drafting system and create sewing patterns!
