Tru-Fit Patterns and Lutterloh System

Tru-Fit is the North American branch of what is known in Europe as Lutterloh System, a pattern drafting supplier founded in Germany in the 1930s. Beware that Tru-Fit has a record of failure to ship Internet purchases. Lutterloh and Tru-Fit may provide reliable shipping, but we feel that all three brands push overpriced sets of drafting supplies and design templates that require extensive work to turn into well-fitting patterns. Fans of the method exist, but most aspiring patternmakers find that their money and time is more successfully spent drafting patterns from scratch with the aid of a textbook or purchasing prepared patterns and altering them as desired.
