NEW SESSION OPEN!! Fit Clinic with Kenneth King



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.

*This class is for intermediate and advanced sewers.

 

  •        The choice of the type of garment is up to you.
