In today’s lesson, I show you how to take correct measurements so that your pattern will fit you perfectly!
My sister, Jill, agreed to be my model and my mom was there, too, so she was my camera woman. And, as you will soon see/hear, Baby Alice was involved in the filming, too, but being adorably distracting. I’ll have to warn you right now that if you get upset by babies making noise in the background (as they are wont to do at the most inopportune time) and mother’s talking to the teacher while she’s teaching, then you better skip watching the video. I have a feeling, though, that most of you will be able to relate to the “adventure” we had creating this video. Despite it being a bit “zany” at times, we decided to go ahead and run with it. After all, it’s real life!
The lesson is divided into two parts: Video 1 provides an introduction and Video 2 demonstrates how to take the measurements.
As always, if you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments section!
