More examples of uses for the tools in Pattern Editor. Also I would like to see a detailed class on how the settings interact with each other with a special emphasis on the bust, sleeve and armscye.

I would like a class on how to read wrinkles and folds in a garment so settings can be adjusted to correct the issue(s).

Hi

This is already extensively covered in the Measurements and Fit Guide under Solving Fit Problems. There are many pictures of wrinkles and how to solve the particular fit problem identified by the wrinkle.

I know I have read through the Measurements and Fit Guide, all the way back to PMB3. May have missed something, but I need help reading the wrinkles for skirts and pants and, to some degree, for the sheath dresses. PMB5 has given me the best fit so far, but I still have wrinkles that run kind of diagonally across the skirt, both front and back. Having a short pear shape probably has something to do with the wrinkles.

Liz - I suspect the hip line is not level. You may also need to increase the number of darts for a smooth transition from waist to hip.

I found your fitting skirt and it was very good.  No wrinkles.  It may be a design doing it.

Send me a summary sheet and pictures of you wearing the skirt so I can take a look.

How about a better table of contents to figure out where all this help is located.
Maybe there is one, but I can't find it.

There is a complete table of contents for each guide. The table of contents starts on page 3 in each of the Guides. When the PDF document first opens, use the arrows at the bottom of Adobe Reader and click twice to go to page 3.

I am sure this is not the place to say this, but when I use the table of contents, I never find what I am looking for.
I know where it is. It is just an observation of mine. It must be murphy's law.

You can use search to locate item in the table of content.  This can be done from the first page of the file.

Type in the word you are looking for and search for the first location in the document.

The program has movies and the Help files have written instructions.

We also have two PE classes

They are downloads classes and there is a charge of $30 for each. Once enrolled you download the recording from the forum.

This message needs to be moved to the group on new classes.  Sorry. I would like more extensive training in creating and working with linings in Pattern Master.  I know there are some lining patterns in Boutique, but the information on making linings from the original patterns is scant.  Also, information on installation of linings made in PM would be helpful.  Thanks and Happy Holidays!

before pmb had the lining option I made many linings using just the pattern pieces. I used a hand out from unique techniques, Judy barlup, I am not sure if she is still around, but I still use her instruction. I have also found lining making in various books and the bagged lining is something that I do at times, or some variation of it. I have used the pmb lining option, but I still go to my Judy Barlup notes and alter the pmb lining.

I do agree that most of the time the lining section in most books is minimal. I made a lining for DD riding coat and the lining was pulling the hem up. I ended up adding to the lining at the hem where it was too short. She has seams in the lining, but nobody can see them. the coat now hangs nicely, and has for the past ten years, and nobody has ever noticed my patch job in the lining, they just notice the beautiful lining. I learned my lesson, any other coat I made with that pattern I added extra at the hem and adjusting if needed later on.

There are two classes.  The second class used the advanced design tools.

 For more advanced techniques I would recommend the Digital Flat Drafting book. It shows how designs are created for the style editor and from there you would have the info to create your own designs.

Karen. I bought the book and I love it. The teaching I would like that is missing is how to make your own set-in sleeve pattern eg % length of sleeve to cap or however else it is formulated.

Would really enjoy more PE classes such as your Necklines PE instructions.

Also, would like a notation to show up that when changing a measurement, it would affect _____ and/or _____ so one could immediately see what the change affects. I sometimes have a hard time finding which other measurements were affected.

But would enjoy taking any new classes offered. They are always so instructive. Lora Marr

I' like a 'Like' Button! But yes, even since I got the software, WAY back 12 years or so ago, that something that tells you that changing measurement A will affect B would be extremely handy - or at least a loose guide.

Once you have a fit garment, unless there is a major change in weight, 40 plus pounds, all you need to do,is check circumferences and the crotch length for minor seasonal weight changes. These measurements don't affect other measurements.

Karen--I may have lost as much as 3/4" in height since I was measured, due to osteoporosis. That may not seem like much, but I was 4'10 3/4" originally. I'm not sure where the decrease is at, or if it is just spread up and down my spine. Should I consider being re-measured? I'm wondering about FSS, BSS, back and front lengths?

Hopefully you still have your sloper. If so, put it on and see where the waist hits.

Measurements over the years have changed so they interact very little. The cf and fss and the cb and the bss need to be changes the same amount to retain the angle of the shoulder.

Once you have a fit unless there is a major change in weight, just check your circumferences.
