Today: Fit Model
3 of 7

A pattern is developed and fitted to a fit model. The fit model is chosen because her body size and shape represent the designer’s vision of the ideal customer for this style. A pattern is developed and perfected on the fit model and then proportionally increased and decreased (i.e., graded) to make a size range of patterns.
