Got a long, tall kid or a more petite one you sew for? If the little ones in your life don’t measure exactly to pre-determined specifications on a pattern, it can be hard to figure out how to add or remove length while maintaining a garment’s proportions. Liesl will explain how to lengthen or shorten patterns for different types of garments.

What you will learn:
— Lengthening a skirt, dress or pants pattern
— Shortening a skirt, dress or pants pattern
— Knowing where to adjust pattern
