Judy Kessinger started her career owning and operating a small retail fabric store in Louisville, Kentucky. She traveled nationwide holding seminars for Hancock Fabrics for over 25 years! Judy's next goal was to make STRESS-FREE sewing with simple solutions for fitting. Her personal style included many relaxed, comfortable, but well-fitted outfits. In her search for the "perfect" pattern, she decided to use her experience and create the system herself! And so the Master Tops and Master Pants patterns were born.

Cost: $ 79.00
Take Judy Kessinger's Master Tops pattern and customize it to yourself!
