Hallo to all,
I am quite new to PMB and this is my first post here. I thought , I have to introduce myself after having read many, many threads from you, which have helped me a lot of understanding this fantastic programm.
My name is Monika, I am a wife and a mother of three little kids ( 1, 3, 5). Sewing is what I love to do at my freetime,( when I have some
).

My first dress I made with PMB was fitting very good. ( after I made to fiting slopers),
BUT then I made a very stupid mistake, I put it in the tumble dryer...and aahh no, it was much shorter and tighter .
But I think I can still wear it over leggins.
I try to attach pictures.

Monica, if I could wear that dress I would! And that brings up a point, I've been wearing my tops and trousers a bit tighter lately, Not so much because I'm skinnier but because they fit better!
What a great job you've done!

Thank you all for your nice responses.
I will be more carefull with washing and drying in future, so that my clothes stay church wearable.

At the moment I am working on my pants sloper. my problem here are my flat high hips. Has someone have the same problem?
There are some fiting solution mentioned ind the fiting guide, but I am not sure, how these will affect the "shape" of the pants.
My aim is just to reduce the to much fabric over the hips at the sideseams.
Maybe someone has an advice?

Monika.

Maybe less hip ease or try the wild cut -- flatter hip curve.

You look great. I have the same issue with flat hips. I use zero hip ease and manually remove the hip curve.

Great success on a first try. Always wash fabric (or treat as garment will be treated) before cutting out.

MonikaS,

 

Have you made up a fitted garment - don't change any of the settings. Mark the horizontal lines as instructed. Take 3 photos - front, back and side view and email these to Karen together with your summary.

 

I tried to do it all myself without any assistance from Karen and it would have been so much easier if I had done the above which Karen has advised.

 

Good luck!

Start with the fit pants and defaults. Sew it up. Take a front, back and side view and send to support@wildginger.com. I need to see the balance lines.

Include the summary.

And I would say, wash and dry the fabric MORE than once. Three times is not unreasonable. Wash and dry it AT LEAST as hot as you will do with the garment when it is done. I have a nice red knit shirt that is now much too short.

Yes, it really was a good idea, sending pictures of my pants sloper to Karen. I did it and she said, it is good., she just would reduce the hipease. So I sew a second sloper with 0 hipease and this one was , what I was looking for. I thought I have a problem with flat highhips, but probably it is not so mich.
Thank you all for you good advise.

I confess, I never washed ans dried fabric befor sewing, . It never happened bevor, that garment shrinked so much.
But now I learned and keep that accident in mind.

Monika.

Hi Pam,
As a German living in Germany, I am confused...
Is DRYER the wrong term for the machine , which dries your washed clothes?

Dryer is the correct term. Pam may not have one.

I always wash and dry fabric before it goes to the sewing room.  These days most things do not shrink, but I like to do it anyway.  I find sometimes fabrics are a bit out of alignment on the bolt and this lets me see what they are going to do.

I love it! So cute! Too bad about the dryer. I always wash new fabric before I cut it. Learned that from my quilting days
