  • Remarkable!

    I wish I had discovered this system years ago! This system is better than terrific! It is a system that many people could get accustomed to using, whether you are a very seasoned seamstress or a semi experienced seamstress. I can see myself using this method from now on. Especially if they continue to come out with new patterns! Make the purchase. You will not be sorry. I definitely recommend this system for anyone that enjoys sewing. The fit received from this type pattern making cannot be beat anywhere.

  • Easy to use

    I made the Vest from the "how-to flyer" first thing. It was very easy to make the pattern. It fits very nice.It takes the stress out of getting a patternto fit. I am a new sewer and I could neverget the commercial patterns to fit. So I'mHappy to find a system that works.It comes with tons of patterns. Basic andadvanced. I found patterns good for all ages of women. It also comes with a few patterns for Men and children. It also offers patterns for stretch material.I going to try one of those next.Directions for sewing the garment togetherare not included with each pattern, generalsewing directions are included at the front of the binder.

  • Best price at HSN, used worldwide since '30s

    Waist/hips to 50".NOT for beginners.Yes, ANYONE can DRAW customized patterns w/special tape measure incl.(can't purch. sep.). But fabric layout, construct.order/methods (pockets, collars,sleeves, buttons,linings, zipper,etc) require MINIMUM intermed. sew. knowledge/skills (only 9pg refresher incl). HSN sells old kit (what I rec'd), no longer avail. elsewhere except as individ. "Supplements" # 275 thru 281 (40 patterns ea.x7x$21=$147)-View the patterns online at Lutterlohsystem (Europe, best selection); "Lutterloh" or "Lutterloh-system" in FL. IMO, HSN's kit is better overall for 45+, comfort-minded, traditional, small town/rural (more sportswear/ casual & garment ease) while new Lutterloh Apr.2014 kit seems more under-40 city/ corporate/upscale (less garment ease, body-hugging). Blogspot "sewingnhumming" -best Lutterloh help forum. HSN kit has trad. MENS SUIT-none in new version.

  • My Fitting Problems are O-V-E-R Forever

    I had a 3-hour American version of the DVD for this product over 6 years, after watching it I entered The Golden Rule in my search engine the HSN website. A home seamstress for over 20 years, I have encounter frustrating fitting problems due to weight fluctuation after making a jacket, skirt and blouse from the Golden Rule system the clothes that I made fits like a glove. I am very glad that the HSN website came up from my search, now my fitting problems are over forever.

And for you experience sewers - you can mix up the patters and create your own!

  • I love this

    The Lutterloh gives you a pattern based on your own basic measurements. THEN, you need to tweak it to your own needs, such as length and various figure situations. I love being able to get the first draft with my basic measurements. Then I shorten it and make the shoulders more narrow. I find the drafting goes quite fast once you get the hang of it. There are so many patterns as well. :)

  • wonderful

    My girlfriend got this, and I used it with her help (I am a novice). Wow. I always have clothes in mind when I go to the store, but they never seem to have them. Now I can make my own.

  • Love this system!!

    I just received the system a few days ago, and drafted my first pattern. I paper fitted the pattern and can see that the fit is going to be much better than any I have gotten with traditional patterns. The pattern making was quite simple. This is an awesome system and since it has been around since 1935 and still selling, that proves that it works. I am sure that anyone who tries it will love it. HSN, will you be selling the quartely supplements?
