Lutterloh Pattern System taught at SP House of Culture
Saturday, March 12th, 2016
Invented in Germany around 1935, the Lutterloh Pattern-Making was created, and on Saturday March 5th, around 27 interested seamstresses and tailors, as well as hobby sewing enthusiasts were able to participate in a free class to learn the method.
Inside the San Pedro House of Culture, Frank Lutterloh walked interested attendees through the method of making their own patterns to be able to sew basic items from scratch. Custom-fit patterns were no longer the end product of years of study, as Lutterloh showed simple tricks and tips to creating patterns to follow on a sewing machine. Participants who attended one of the two afternoon classes learned to make two styles of vests and a collar and sleeve, which were then fitted on a volunteer so that they could see the final result.
Prior to the classes in San Pedro Town, Lutterloh held classes at Mikado Store in Belize City.
