Sewing means taking the time to think about your project, choosing your pattern, fabrics and finishing details with love. But it also means wanting to have a wardrobe that is truly made BY and FOR you.
Sewing patterns, just like commercial clothes, are constrained by "standards" in their development. And even though all Maison Fauve models are graded by an experienced pattern maker (in both small and large sizes) and all our models are tested before being sold, each woman's proportions are unique.
Many of you ask about the choice of sizes according to the chart when you don't fit into the same gradation in chest and hips, about how to adapt a pattern when you are taller/shorter than the indicated height, about adjustment concerning the chest size...
I want sewing with Maison Fauve to be a pleasure, and that once your garment is sewn you feel beautiful and comfortable in it. That's why I worked with a professional seamstress to create this guide.
Richly illustrated, and classified by theme, it will provide you with answers to most of the situations you may encounter when you want to perfectly fit your pattern.
I hope you have a wonderful time sewing, and please... make a toile (prototype)!
