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.
