Have you ever sewn something for yourself, only to realize it doesn’t fit? You spend hours cutting everything out, adding interfacing, cutting out lining, and sewing. Then realize you forgot to adjust the sizes! All that time, effort and money wasted! So, when I heard about Fayma patterns I was intrigued. But skeptical.
They create custom patterns based on your measurements. This way, you just print and sew. No adjustments necessary.
I decided to try their agility leggings first because I’ve done an online course where we learned to make leggings using our own measurements. And mine ended up being too big!
I double checked my measurements so I don’t know what went wrong.
So, I was interested to see how the Fayma leggings pattern turned out.
My Impressions of Fayma Patterns
First: there is an app you need to download. Not ideal but not the end of the world.
Next, there were quite a few measurements but they did provide video instructions for how to do each measurement. And the app also lets you save all your measurements to a profile. This way, you can just use the same measurements for your next pattern instead of having to measure every time.
They were pretty easy to sew and cut out.And they actually fit!
I didn’t even have to adjust the length! (I’m short). The instructions were also pretty simple to follow.
So, even though it may seem a little annoying to take your measurements and download the app, once it’s all set up and done, I thought it was worth it. (although, I may be biased because I also HATE adjusting my pattern sizes!)
I definitely recommend!
Next, I’m going to try their new world blouse pattern. It looks like a mock wrap top/bodysuit. I’m very interested to see how this goes because every mock wrap top and dress I’ve had has been too big in the bust- even when I tried extra small.
Plus, the top is a more advanced project. So, I’m interested to see how the instructions go (I did follow their agility leggings instructions but, honestly, I didn’t need to- I already know how to sew leggings). Stay tuned to see how it goes!
