Adaptation of the pattern

The sewing patterns meet certain standards, regardless of the number of sizes offered and the measurements indicated in the table. Each body is unique and the beauty of sewing is to break away from the standards for a result that suits you. Hence the need to always sew a canvas, like a draft of the garment to check how it falls on you and what modifications, if any, you can make.
