Monica, I saw the post about how you wanted to make pants. I want to share a web site where you can learn to adjust sewing patterns to fit your body. I am short and stocky. Sewing was not hard for me; but fitting was impossible until I went here...
There are features you can access for free; however, for a $5 per month fee, you get step-by-step personalized instruction from the site owner by posting photos after each pattern adjustment and access to well-made videos that show you adjustments for pants, skirts, tops (tunic, button front, princess seam, wrap).
Thank you very much Ashford.
I will have a look at the website and pass this on to my other visitors.
