Keeping Track

Often in classes, I’m asked how to keep track of things like increases and decreases. Here is a raglan jacket for DD#2. I’ve shaped it to skim her body. At each decrease is one of my favorite markers.

This is how I keep track.

The light blue thread marks the place where she tried it on for length and I saw I needed four more inches to reach her waist.

One of the secrets to a custom fit is to try it on often and mark where you are.
