Garment Sewing


Fit is the Holy Grail of garment sewing-all the fine sewing in the world will not save a badly fitted garment. There is precious little information out there on fitting and this class aims to address that lack of good information. This fitting clinic will perform two functions: to explain and demonstrate how to fit garments and to create a pattern of a favorite garment that actually fits. The student will bring in a muslin mock-up of a garment that they want adjusted to fit them properly. In class, they will learn how to adjust the garment for a proper fit. A pattern will be created based on the adjustments according to the information provided in the re-fitted muslin. At the end of class, along with a well-fitting pattern, the students will gain an understanding of the procedure and principles of how to "fit" so they can apply these skills to future garments. Seating is limited to insure everybody gets personal attention. *This class is for intermediate and advanced sewers.
