For instructions on how to assemble tiles to create pattern pieces, head over to The VJ Seamsters sewing group on Face Book. There, you will also be able to exchange 'make up' tips and tricks with other VJ Seamsters.
At VJ Seamsters we make vintage inspired patterns for the curvy 'apple shaped' woman.
As well as flattering the curvy form, we create patterns which we consider 'contemporary classics': styles that don't date quickly and can be easily customised and adapted to your shape.
When choosing a style, check its sizing spec before you buy, so that you can gauge how much ease the style allows. Remember, some styles are more shaped and fitted than others so the amount of ease often differs from pattern to pattern.
