Sure-Fit Designs Sally Silhouette Croquis

Introducing

Sally Silhouette

 
Going shopping?  Let Sally Silhouette tag along.
 
Sally is a well-proportioned silhouette illustration.  She's extremely useful when copying fashion designs and garment styles from ready-to-wear, pattern catalogues or magazines.
 
Just fold her up and tuck a few copies of her in your handbag.  You just never know when you'll see that next exciting design you'd like to copy, design and sew for yourself.
 
You don't have to have artistic abilities with Sally as your buddy.  Just sketch the style lines you're seeing in the garment directly on her body frame.  Make any special notes in the space provided.  Remember to check out the back of the garment and jot those details down too.
 
From this handy sketch, it's easy to replicate the design with your Sure-Fit Designs body blueprint.
 
Here's what she looks like.  All you need to do is click on either (or both) links to obtain your Free copies of Sally Silhouette.  She comes in 2 sizes.  The full size Sally fits an 8.5x11 standard page (A4 sheet size for our international customers) for all your at-home sketching or 2 smaller Sally's stacked one on top of the other - just perfect for tucking in your handbag.
 
Enjoy!....Glenda
