I may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.
I’m not sure WHY i’m so late to hop on to this bandwagon, but i’m here and i’m not going anywhere!! Made to measure patterns are truly the way to go whenever possible! The company I decided to go with is called BOOTSTRAP FASHION
The way it works:
(Per their website www.bootstrapfashion.com)
Step 1: Select A PatternChoose a pattern design from our collection. Our pattern collection is runway inspired and designs vary from vintage to contemporary to couture.Step 2: MeasureMeasure yourself, your fit model or your client.
Step 3: Submit Your MeasurementsEnter your measurements for each pattern, or create an account and save your measurements to use on multiple patterns.
Step 4: Print PatternAfter you complete your purchase, the pattern will arrive to your email box within 15-30 minutes. Print and assemble patterns; or import into Pattern Making CAD or Adobe Illustrator for further customization.
One thing that I love about their many many patterns is that you can add your own style to them. You can take them and design them as you like, but many you will love just the way they are 🙂 !
Below is my review of their lovely 56959 Which is a crop top.

The patterns are designed based on your individual measurements.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Very easy to follow, and you can email or chat with customer service (when online) to get help if you don’t understand a step. I thought that this was amazing!!! There have been so many patterns that I just did not finish because I didn’t understand a step.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I loved everything about this pattern!! I love the style, I love that its made to your measurements!! So there is absolutely NO guess work!!! I have been limited in the past by what clients I can accept, or what things I could make because the pattern companies limit you SO much!! Ladies with a very small waist and larger hip ratio will love this! Because it had fit adjustments especially for being curvy 🙂

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
It fit perfectly. I purchased the pattern WITHOUT seam allowances so that I could measure the pattern to make sure it was the correct size. It’s easier to do this without seam allowances. The pattern was DEAD ON!!!! I had to make a very small adjustment to the back seam, but that was only because I wanted it a little more fitted at my waist (just a personal preference). Next time I will take an inch off of my measurements, I prefer negative ease, so that its very fitted. I did not do this with this was a first run and I wasn’t sure how it would turn out. But I am in LOVE!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
