Compare your fullest hip measurements to the "Body Measurements" table. Choose the size that fits your hip best. If you are in between sizes, pick the larger size if you like a looser fit; otherwise pick the smaller size. 2. Compare your waist measurements to the "Body Measurements" table. Choose the size that fits your waist best. If you are in between sizes, pick the larger size if you like a looser fit; otherwise pick the smaller size. 3. It's OK to use different sizes for the waist and hip. All you have to do is print the sizes that you need, and blend the lines from one size to the next from the waist to the hip. I highly recommend that you check your fit by making a test garment with inexpensive fabrics that have similar thickness and stretchiness as your final garment fabrics. Material -Primary fabric Use medium-weight 2-way or 4-way drapey knit fabric with at least 50% width-wise stretch. For example, your fabric, when folded in half, should be able to stretch from 4" to at least 6" (10 cm to 15 cm). Matte jersey, jersey and ITY knit are good choices. Woven fabrics are not recommended. Other Materials -1 1?2"-wide (4 cm-wide) knit elastic as long as your waist - you can go up to 1 3?4"-wide (5 cm-wide), but do not use narrower elastic Tools -Ball-point or stretch machine needles Optional Tools -Walking foot for your sewing machine -Serger machine -Cover stitch machine to finish your hems -Twin needles to finish your hems -Wooly nylon threads to finish your hems Fabric Requirements Most natural fibers shrink in the wash; be sure to have enough fabric. The requirements below assume that the fabric is already pre-shrunk.

Hi, welcome to Itch to Stitch! I am Kennis Wong, owner and designer of Itch to Stitch sewing patterns. Actually, I am also the web/tech gal, customer support, drafter, illustrator, model, marketer and everything in between. Luckily, I do have a loyal partner in crime (a.k.a. my husband, Ray), who provides constant moral support, technical consultancy and beautiful photography. In my past careers, I was in software and then in marketing. I got my master of business degree from University of Southern California. But after all that ladder climbing in Corporate America, we decided that we want to live a fulfilling life. That’s why Ray and I moved to beautiful Costa Rica. Now we live by the largest lake in the Country, Lake Arenal. My goal in life is not being able to distinguish play from work, and Itch to Stitch is helping me to achieve this goal. I wake up everyday happy and look forward to everything I do for Itch to Stitch. And I get awfully excited about the new designs. I learned to sew when I was 13 years old in Hong Kong. I attended the so-called “technical” school where, in addition to normal subjects, girls had to learn typing, home economics and dress making, and the boys had to learn technical drawing, woodworking and metal work. If I had my way, I probably would take the boys’ classes too, since I love working with my hands (the school wouldn’t be able to get away with that gender segregation today). My first finished garment was a baby’s dress. And I learned to sew on a treadle machine (you see, the school wasn’t that well-funded). I just loved everything about it. Since then I have been sewing on and off, using commercial patterns from the Big 4, European sewing magazines and some independent designers. Finally, I said to myself, “Why don’t *I* design something?” Itch to Stitch’s designs are really my personal style. They are modern and elegant. Perhaps they are not always simple to sew (because I love details!), but they always have high-quality finishes. Of course I want them to fit well; that’s why most of my designs have many sizes and different cup options. I am always looking for inspirations. I post them on Pinterest (http://www.pinterest.com/sewitchtostitch/), Instagram http://instagram.com/itchtostitch #ItchToStitchDesigns) and Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/ItchToStitchDesigns/).
