A New Video Series - Fitting your Shoulder - Square Shoulder Adjustment/Minor-Tune-Up

At Sure-Fit Designs™, we've made a commitment to your fitting success with your sewing patterns.  In that regard, we are constantly adding new instructional and educational videos for your benefit.  As of December 2012, we now have 100 videos that I know will help many of you achieve the very best fit possible. And, they are all free - no strings attached - no registration or sign-up is required.  These videos cover all kinds of topics from drawing the Sure-Fit Designs patterns to pattern refinements and modifications to designing with your patterns.  I'll be sharing them in this blog, but if you want to, go directly to the Sure-Fit Designs Video Library.

For those of you who follow this blog and for those of you who just wander by as a result of a random search, I'll be showing you 'old' videos as well as new ones as they become available.  So if you haven't already, make sure you subscribe to this blog (the subscription link is on the lower left of this page), so that you'll then receive notification of new blogs as they are posted.

This week I'm going to start by giving you a new series of instructional videos on how to get your pattern's shoulder line to fit with your shoulder line and shape.  The first one is on how to square the shoulder.  I hope you enjoy and benefit from seeing this quick and easy pattern adjustment (or as I call them - minor tune-ups).

Also, just a quick request from me...please share any of this video content on your personal blog or Facebook page and help me to spread the word about the Sure-Fit Designs fitting and sewing system.  Thanks so much, Glenda.

Here's the Square Shoulder Minor Tune-Up/Alteration - it's amazingly quick and easy!


  1. Do you have any recommendations for making sure the notches end up in the correct location, after making this modification to the shoulder and armscye?

  2. You may need to rotate/move them if you've moved the sleeve cap notch. Here's a video on drawing notches - GI.10 How to Draw the Matching Notches. Just go to www.sfdLearningCenter.com to the Video Library - this video is in the first grouping of General Interest videos.
