At this Panel you'll learn how to read and understand sewing patterns, from Simplicity to Vogue. Tips and tricks from which brand of pattern to purchase to which brands have strange sizing quirks. If you have ever been lost looking at sewing patterns, this is the panel for you! I will present this panel on a power point. With the rise of commercial cosplay patterns making it easier to start on a costume I will cover how to read and understand what can be a overwhelming and complicated experience. I always time my panels to include a 10-15 Q&A at the end to engage with the audience and for them to ask questions.
