Hello. There was a class (online) that you could take that showed you how to reproduce commercial patterns in PMB. Is this still available?

If I remember correctly we did this as part of the class on Blouse, Jacket and Dresses.

 It was more of a class exercise that teaching how to create each design.

Oh. I see a lot of patterns (commercial) that I would love to make that aren't in PMB. What course would you suggest I take to develop the skills needed to do this?

We don't have a class just for this. It really takes practice to pick out the design features.

If you have something in mind, post the photo or pattern number and people will come up with some amazing ideas.

Hi Sarah, everyone.... I'm a commercial patternmaker in my "ay job" and have been an enthusiastic user/fan of PMB/Cameo for over a decade now. I would love to have the "challenge" of drafting a pattern from your "inspiration" picture and sharing it with everyone. As opposed to an image of a "commercial" pattern, a fashion photo that you would clip on to something like Pinterest would be preferable. In fact, I keep a board of "pattern inspirations" there, and since the source is always credited I'm not stepping on anyone's toes.

Even though I make patterns for the fashion industry day in and day out, I have the same exact problem as probably 99.9% as everyone else on this forum- getting patterns to fit ME! I'm not a standard size 2 or 4 or even an 8. I'm short, an pear shaped... which means my "size" is all over the standard charts!! Experienced patternmakers easily go through 2 maybe even 3 rounds of revisions to perfect a pattern/style- and we're talking the perfect size 4 model.... so it's not unrealistic to expect that it will take a few tries for the rest of us to get a comfortable fit on our unique body types. Adding to the mix is that PMB has no control over what fabrications you are selecting, or you level of sewing skill or choices in appropriate amounts of wearing ease for that style. I always say "Just because it fit's doesn't mean it's flattering!" lol

Catina,

If you have time, then will you PLEASE make a video tutorial on how to rotate bust darts to one side of the waist, and then create tucks. I've tried and tried, but the process eludes me. Trish did a great job of describing it, but a video would be so much better. This is a style that I've always liked, and I've spent hours in PE trying to figure it out, but I'm just not succeeding.

Here is a link to Trish's thread about the jacket that she made for a reception. That is the look that I want to make.

Thank you!

Jill

Hi I thought I would as a question on sprt pof the same subject. Ive been sewing for about 2.5 years, and am making most of my own clothes now ( and matching coats for my dog, Briggitte... she puts up with it ) and a, now using the tailor made software here. I wouldnt mind having my shirts actually fit me = ive tried to copy a shirt that fits, but at my level, i need to know that everything is starting out the right sizes... - anyway I have just printed out my first two patterns gere, a jacket and a shirt. am going to start putting it together today.

my question

i found a commercial pattern for a tux jacket (Vouge) that uses many tailoring techniques and is constructed in a way that I would like to use for various projects. SOMEHOW I misunderstood the sizing and it is about 3 sizes too small. It ises different types of interfacings, the collar has the space in the back for the felt and all the lining is in seperate pieces etc...

I understand that you cannot just make a pattern larger - there is a grading thing that comes into play.

Im guessing that I may be able to get a pattern to fit me here... then attempt to remake the too small pattern to match the one printed out here... OR what does everyone think?

also, I do not understand why when you make a fit garment, that you send it into the support people... do you do that if it doesnt fit? It seems to be important as it is built into the software.

thank you for any advice

joe

If the fit garment fits, no need to send to support. If it dos not fit, send th summary and pictures to support@ildginger.com

You can also send measurements before doing your fit garment. We can often spot a number out of range.

Hello, I'm Andrea, and I have been using the software and designing patterns for going on 8 years now. I have been teaching pattern fitting on my YouTube channel for the last 2 years. You can find me there to see my latest Cameo Design videos. http://www.youtube.com/c/sewtofitadlynn
This video is where I show how I design a basic gored skirt: https://youtu.be/tXC4IGmgsEU

I think you have to subscribe to her YouTube channel to see the videos. I see them when I go to those links but am subscribed to her channel.

So sorry everyone that the links were private. I have created unlisted videos for you all to watch in a playlist on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLeGwfW96f3jUhp-f0kZjUpzgPHd8E...
Let me know if there is a problem.
Andrea.
