Apex schmapex – what’s the big deal about this?

This technique along with the FBA are my two biggest secret weapon when it comes to fitting my clients. This is a technique that I discovered and have not read anything about any where else. You will only find this through Design U Ebook.

And here’s the thing: this isn’t rocket science or brain surgery. This is fairly straight forward, but if you don’t know what to look for, you can easily miss it. Additionally, most folks know something’s wrong, but if you don’t know about this technique, you’ll trash something that could be repaired and become a beloved garment in your closet.

Basically this is how to de-accentuate those pesky little (OK, mine are big, I confess) problems that our bodies seem to collect like a magnet collects metal!!! Those wonderful areas to fit like our bust, our chest, our stomach, our fanny, our hips!!!! Ugh!!! Don’t remind me!!!

But guess what. Don’t worry about those parts. Because fitting them is what’s key here. And once you fit yourself, it’s amazing how much better you look. Can it be that simple – fitting those problem areas makes you look better? Yep, it can!

I even use this when I’m re-fashioning a garment for a client – you know something they’ve bought and for one reason or another it was “just the thing” only to get it home and find out it was filled with problems. This technique can make you an expert – only because you know now to look for it.

A lot of the reason so many people get discouraged and really at odds with sewing clothes for themselves is that they think they don’t know how to fit. The real problem is two-fold: Not only do we not know what a good fit is, we’ve lost the basic principles of what makes a good fit.

Good Grief!!! How can we be expected to perform a technique when we don’t even know what the goal is.

Don’t be so hard on yourself. This ability to ascertain a good fit and to understand it has literally been driven out of us by the fast fashion industry. Face it. They not only don’t want your clothes to fit correctly (that would involve a gazillion different models for just one size), but they take it even further and don’t want you to even KNOW what a good fit is.

Come back to reality and beauty. A classic good fit is not only something that will save you from looking horrible, but it will make you look smarter, more professional and make YOU feel better (well, we know that a good fit will make you feel more comfortable in your clothes, but it will also make you feel better when you look in the mirror – two kinds of “feel goods”)

So this Ebook is not only about the fitting technique itself, but there’s a lot of information in there about what a good fit is, and how to get it for yourself. You’ll not only use this for your clothes that you make but for those you alter. And those patterns that you thought were trash?….that you never finished cause they didn’t fit?…..well, get ‘em out – particularly if you liked them. Because with this technique you can work them into some of your TNT (Tried ‘n True) patterns.

As a bonus with this Ebook comes another staple from art school. Architects to designers will tell you, if they are honest with you, that when it comes to proportion or creating designs that work, that they all use the “Golden Triangle” ratio. This was a technique developed by the Greeks and you will see not only what it is, but just how pleasing this ratio is when you use it with your designs.

This isn’t that difficult so don’t think I’m taking you down a long laborious road here. This is a fairly simple yet very effective method to determine how to make your jacket in proportion to your skirt or pants, or how to determine if something is over-powering your look.

Don’t try and use this on everything, but for the major or big parts of your designs, this is a wonderful tool to have.
