am very pleased to announce my affiliation with Connie Crawford, a
licensed designer for the McCall Pattern Company under the Butterick
label, member of the American Sewing Guild’s Sewing Hall of Fame, and
former instructor at the Fashion Institute of Design &
Merchandising (FIDM) in Los Angeles.
Connie has virtually done a PhD in pattern fitting! After draping
on many live models (not mannequins) Connie has her own pattern range
in 52 sizes, which will fit just about everyone.
So if you are tired of trying to get a good fit in your dressmaking
then Connie’s patterns are the answer to your prayers!
I have been fortunate enough to be trained by Connie in her fitting
methods and can help you choose your correct size and open up a whole
new experience of just cutting out the pattern, sewing it up and
wearing your well fitted garments. And isn’t that how sewing
I am available for personalized fittings and group seminars, and keep a
stock of Connie’s own pattern line and books for you to purchase.
Just send me an email
with your request.
