How different are my patterns
Traditionally, patterns are bought in little pouches. they are on very thin paper and folded 4 to 6 times.
Coco’s pattern are different and you can download free sample there to try out.
|Thin paper doesn’t lie flat on the fabric. the size might change while cutting it.|
It is very hard to reuse, the paper is too fragile.
The pieces are all over the place, on different sheets and it adds more confusion.
|80 gr paper (same you use in your printer)The size is A1.|
|One color : all is printed in black||Different color for different lines : cutting line in red, stitching line in green……|
|Lack of construction line. Only the finish shape is presented to you. Waist line or hips lines are not shown. Alteration can only be done after a fitting.||All the line are printed. stitching line, facing line….. so you know what has been done and can do some alteration on paper at waist, hips……before cutting.|
|The explanations are very complicated and often confusing||Only assembling instructions. You can adapt the finishing you want according to your level of sewing.|
|Many sizes and gradation lines||Only on size on paper with the possibility to draw amendment yourself.|
All my patterns are send in a A4 envelope.
