The Lutterloh System International flat pattern making manual is updated annually in
December, taking out old quarterly supplements and replacing with current updates.
When you purchase a Lutterloh Manual you do not have to buy a new one each year.
You can order seasonal supplements: Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter to keep your
manual up-to- date. You will be notified via sewbeit-talk group as new supplements
become available. If you live in a climate where you don’t need all seasons, you can
order individual supplements.
Fabric Suggestions are not given with the Lutterloh patterns. This is a personal
preference since every pattern can be made in many different fabrics, each creating a
different look. The sketches of the designs determine the silhouette of the garment. Is
it crisp, tailored or softly gathered? Is the design detailed or does it have few lines? A
dramatic print or textured fabric is best for a garment with simple lines. This is the fun
part of sewing – choosing fabric that YOU like to wear based on your figure type.
Fabric allowance is calculated on a 92cm (36”) Bust measurement. You can lay out the
pattern on a piece of fabric to determine the exact amount needed. A conversion chart
is also provided in the Complimentary issue of Sew Be It.com Newsletter.
The complete manual does include pattern making instructions and a Symbols Table to
guide you through drafting your own perfect fitting pattern in minutes. FAST, EASY
AND ACCURATE! You can copy and enlarge the Symbols page – laminate it and place
near your sewing area to use as a quick reference.
Keep in mind that the Lutterloh System is a flat pattern making system. It does not
teach you how to sew. I will continue to provide tips and techniques on how to sew with
Lutterloh. I am here for you to help you become successful with this system.
