Patterns for fitted felt garments
The question I hear most from felters is; Do you have a pattern? Many felters have mastered the seamless resists method of making garments but lack the dressmaking skills to create patterns or templates for garments that are fitted and shaped. By using your own measurements at standard dressmaking points we can translate those details into a template that can be used over and over again. The type of garments you can make are only limited by your imagination.
