If you're just getting started sewing clothes or want to learn, then you need to watch this video tutorial to truly understand drafting in order to add contouring for fitted pieces. Doja walks you through the process and understanding so that it will finally click no matter your skill level.

From the Blogger: "Pattern Contouring is one of the most useful techniques one can employ when pattern drafting as it guarantees a well-fitted garment (if done correctly). This specific technique is something people sometimes struggle to understand. I know I did, but now that I actually know how it works, I've created a video to help you all! It's actually very simple and I even give an example of how you can use your contouring guidelines to adjust the fit of your drafted garments."

NotesFast forward to 3:55 if you want to see an example of how contouring is used.
