How to Lengthen or Shorten A Sewing Pattern

Hi, there!

This is Part 2 of my fitting video to show you basic steps on fitting a sewing pattern to yourself.

In this example, I’m working with McCalls 6752 skirt front piece and I’m adding length. The same theory applies when shortening a pattern piece.

In Part 1, I showed how to widen a sewing pattern. And in this video, part 2, I’m going to show you how I add length.

Enjoy and if you have questions, just ask!
