I took a class by Lorraine Henry called 'Swivel Your Seams' that teaches a way to make pattern adjustment at the seamline. The method is very easy to adapt and makes so much sense to me that I want to share it with you.
- All you do is create hinges that allow you to move the seam in or out depending on your adjustments. I love that it doesn't change much about the original pattern making it easy to match pieces together, everything seems to make much more sense.
- Start by making all length adjustments then add or subtract width as needed at the seamline.
- It's that easy!
Here are a couple of notes from the class.
