I’ve tried various pattern making methods;
The Check Block Method from India
The Lutterloh System from Germany
The Pattern Drafter from Australia
The Point and Pivot Pattern ruler
The Bonfit Patterner
The Sure Fit
Each of these methods has pros and cons. But my newest purchase, the Sure Fit design, is by far my favorite. It was so easy drafting the bodice sloper and the pants sloper. I was able to draft the pants sloper in less than 20 minutes. The Pants fit perfectly! With the sloper, I have been able to sew one sleep pants, one sleep shorts and a pair of pants that I can wear outside. I really like this method. All of the other methods are not bad either. I was just determined to find the easiest pattern maker.
I started with drafting the pattern using my body measurements and the Alfred method, but there seem to be so many different ways to get the initial sloper, that I abandoned that method for something quicker.
With me gaining all of this weight, I am happy that I can just whip up some nice fitting yoga pants to run around in.
Distraction is still working.
