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 with one-on-one help from our garment sewing expert, Beth Galvin.
For this lab, bring a tissue paper sewing pattern or pre-sewn muslin that you want fitted for you, such as a dress, shirt, jacket, top, or skirt. (We will not be fitting pants in this session.)You will register for a one hour period during which you and one other student will work one-on-one with Beth to fit your pieces and then she will show you the necessary adjustments. You are welcome to come and use our tools and space for the entire 10am - 3pm time period or just come for your assigned time with Beth. It's up to you!
We highly recommend that you take Beth's Adjust the Bust class on October 8th before the Fit Lab. It's not required, but you'll learn so many things about fitting that can be done before coming in to work with Beth in person!
You can also take the Fit Lab to work with Beth on fitting your blazer for her upcoming Intro to Tailoring workshop!
