Wearing Ease in the Shirt Pattern

Wearing Ease in the Shirt pattern
How do you know how much wearing ease is provided in the Sure-Fit Designs Shirt Kit?

Let me explain 'ease'.  Ease is the amount of extra space a pattern has that is above and beyond your actual measurements.  Wearing ease is generally considered the minimum amount required for general comfort room.  Whereas design ease is usually added above and beyond wearing ease to change the silhouette of the basic design.

Previously I posted ease-explanation videos for the Dress and Pants patterns.  You can access this information through this link:

the Sure-Fit Designs Shirt Kit

Today the focus is on the Shirt Kit - seeing the easy process to determine how much ease your finished shirt pattern will have.

You may not be able to click the video link in your email display that is direct link to the video - therefore to watch it in YouTube, please use this link -

For those of you interested in beginning your fitting and sewing journey with the Sure-Fit Designs Shirt Kit, you might want to begin with the Mini Shirt Kit Combo.
