I am excited to use my new SureFit Designs Dress Kit and Pant Kit--but would like company along the way. Glenda, owner of this company is very supportive, and is even willing to set up skype and other internet helps with and for us. Would like friends to join me on this quest who have purchased the kits and need to get going on it. Any positive support is welcome as we approach a challenging quest to better garment fitting--and possibly style designing for ourselves.

I have just bought the " works kit" I am eager to start my dress kit soon. I am dieting at the moment so I am in two minds if I should start now or later on. I guess I could just do it a couple of times until I am at my goal weight.
I have been watching the videos on the learning center with delight. I hope this system is going to make my life better

Hi. I'd like to do this but unfortunately my "the works" kit has not arrived. Also, we're getting ready to move so I won't be able to join you at this time. But I'm very excited about Sure Fit designs and am looking forward to trying them out.
I look forward to seeing what others are making.

I'm in! I've had great success with the pants kit last year and have just taken my measurements to draw up my dress body blueprint. I'm quite keen to sew with both of these kits this year.

I'm also looking to get the other kits, but will wait until I feel I've really used both the kits I've currently got.

I must put in a good word for SureFit pants. I made my first pair last year and Glenda was very responsive with help. She looked at photos of my muslin and gave me tips for a great fit

I'm in! I have been needing an excuse for starting with the dress and shirt kits I bought back in August. I took a class with Glenda at the ASG conference and was very impressed. I need to do the measurements first. I have some from both Unique patterns and the Bernina MyLabel software, but I'm sure they need updating by now.

Thanks for starting this thread!

I'm in! I love my SF pants pattern, but now that I have lost some weight I need to redo the pattern again. I can't start until I get my current project done - should be by Thursday. Is that too late?

I'm booked through next Tuesday, so I could start on Wednesday, the 30th. Not sure which one I will begin with but pants might be the one. This is great!
