I have been reading articles about Sure-Fit Designs, and the reviews have been very positive. While trying to figure out how soon I could save up enough money to treat myself to this pattern drafting system, I remembered that I had four boxes in the sewing room of some drafting kit or other that I had never tried out. They were purchased at the craft thrift store a few years ago and only cost 50 cents each. Sure enough, they were Sure-Fit Design kits from 1982.
Thinking that the kits must have been updated in the 32 years since these were first printed, I emailed the company and got a prompt reply. Their service is certainly excellent. I was told that to update the kits I needed to buy the stylus, the new instructions for the dress kit, and a new improved pants kit. Luckily, my birthday was approaching and the spouse had no idea what to get for my gift, so I helped him out with a suggestion. Now I am eager to try these out, especially the pants kit since one of my daughters has been wanting me to sew her some slacks. This will be the next thing I try after I finish a few UFOs.
