About the Event
Have you tried sewing your own clothes and been frustrated when, after all of your hard work, the fit just isn't right? We've all been there! Did you know that nearly EVERY pattern will need some adjustment in order for it to fit you correctly. Discover the joy of making clothes that fit and look great! This class will focus on tops, dresses, and skirts.
This class will give you the skills to alter patterns to fit your own body. During class, Beth will demonstrate different ways to "tissue fit" patterns to adjust for different body types and cover a variety of solutions for problem areas. Tissue fitting uses the pattern paper itself along with your body measurements to fix pattern problems before you cut the pattern out of fabric.
For the optional, 2 hour Fit Lab part of the class, bring your own pattern to learn how to tissue fit a pattern with Beth. We have limited the fit lab to only 4 students so that each participant can take full advantage of Beth's hand's-on fitting and pattern alteration advice.
This class has 3 hours of instruction followed by an optional 2 hour Fit Lab. This is a pattern alteration class and will not involve using a sewing machine.
Class will be from 10am - 1pm
Fit Lab (optional) will be from 2pm - 4pm
Skill level: ✂️✂️ - ✂️✂️✂️
Advanced beginner - Intermediate
