Dittmars self regulating pattern system ought to be one of the wonders of the modern world!

Did you ever want to finally possess that tradecraft secret you just knew that SOMEONE knew but that was always as elusive as those last vestiges of dreams you try to cling to as you wake?

We all have had that suspicion that those great craftspeople who always seem to get it just right, must have some trade secret that have not shared with us, because the alternative seems to be that they are gifted and we are relegated to the dumb or untalented!

Now you can have one of those valuable and every so elusive trade secret bodies of knowledge- written down and explained. WOW!

Short, simple, pithy, and right to the point – no 400 pages of theory here, just a few pithy pages of real trade secret how to.

Yah – WOW!

OK like all trade secrets worthy of bothering with, this one has a few complexities to get though, but well worth it.

Get this one down right, and you can cut any garment for anyone with perfection.

Throughout history a few visionary folks like De Vinci have noted that body proportions follow regular and systematic mathematical ratios and are predictable for all humans.

Dittmar takes this a step further and uses these ratios with a bunch of rules for garment making to give you a method of making any garment fit anyone perfectly but simply following these natural law ratios and Ditmars garment cutting rules.

Advanced math to deal with? NONE! Practical rules and methods anyone can you to make patterns and garments with perfection? YES!

Here is your chance to be an insider with that secret tradecraft knowledge you always suspected SOMEONE must know.

Now that someone can be you!

Enjoy, amaze and astound your friends, cut clothes that actually fit anyone.

Be well, be happy, using this you will be both.

Hi, I just want to tell you I received the CD today! I absolutely love your elegant packaging! I think I will get another CD to give as a gift for my best friend! Sue H.

Dear folks at Patterns-on-CD, thank you for shipping the cd out so quickly. Your CD is so easy to use. I can print out just the pages I am working on and scribble my notes on the print-out without worry. My dog chewed part of the pattern sheet I was working on, but no worries, I just print out another sheet! I am keeping the print outs in a 3 ring binder and even printed the images I like for the binder cover. Thank you for making this rare antique book available on CD ROM!
