Design and Create Your Own Patterns

Nov. 27

It’s not hard to design and create your own sewing patterns with this product offered by Lutterloh System International. It is a great solution for women who want to design their own clothing or who don’t fit the traditional sizing guides of premade patterns.

Unlike commercial patterns such as McCalls, Simplicity, Vogue, Burda, or Butterick; the Lutterloh System allows you to adjust for an individual’s measurements. These custom-made patterns provide an excellent fit even for people who are not a commercial size.

This DIY pattern system has been used throughout the fashion and sewing industry, and it has been used in fashion schools and sewing stores nationwide,
