This Footstool Is a Better Way to Use the Toilet
no one said anything about standing up.
You are right, this isn't for every project. It is really only worth the effort if you have a garment that fits great but with no pattern to make a new one. I have had several ready to wear blouses that were more flattering and fit better than expected. In the past, I took them apart to make the pattern. With this method, I can make a pattern from a garment that I still plan to wear. In my early years of sewing, I had my mom, grandma or sisters around to help me fit and adjust patterns. Without their help sewing became very frustrating so using something I already KNEW fit made sewing a lot better experience.
