Welcome to my Pattern Design Guides. In the 40+ years I have been teaching people how to create custom-fit patterns I have never ceased to marvel at how no two bodies are the same. The concept of my Pattern Design Guides is to expand on the information in my books How to Make Sewing Patterns and How to Make Custom-Fit Bras and Lingerie by showing people how to create custom-fit slopers for specific types of garments, then alter those slopers for different designs.

"Don's lifetime of experience and expertise in fitting and constructing bras and corsets will instruct and inspire you to produce very professional, satisfying results."

Interactive & Text Only e-Books

My Pattern Design Guides are PDF files in two different formats: Text Only e-Books and Interactive e-Books. The main difference is that the Interactive e-Books contain video demonstrations and forms that can be filled out and saved. The videos mean that the file size of these e-Books is considerably larger than the Text Only e-Books. The Interactive e-Books are subsequently divided into volumes that cover specific topics. They are designed to work with computers using Adobe Reader XI or later. They will not work with tablets or smart phones.
