This class is a must to solve your problems on fitting!!
As I often say, we can all be the most beautiful seamstress but how many times have you laboured on a project only to be disappointed in the final result because it doesn’t fit correctly.
This class will give you the knowledge you need as to why the patterns do not always fit well, and the know how to adjust the patterns for common fitting problems of skirts, bodices and sleeves to achieve a comfortable professional finish.
For this masterclass we use a commercial shell pattern. Comparing your own body measurement and making the necessary changes to the shell resulting in you having a basic block that fits you beautifully.
We will look at:
• Understanding your figure type
•Taking your precise body measurements, compare to the pattern – what’s the difference?
• Make necessary pattern adjustments – looking at: why, how, and where to make the changes to get a quality fit for ‘your’ figure
• Fine tuning points of fitting
At the end of the day you will have gained a good ground knowledge on what constitutes a good fit, how to achieve that fit, and tackle the alterations with confidence, not only using this pattern, but any other you use in the future. This pattern can be then used as a ’basic block’ for the skirt, bodice and sleeve, and further develop different style lines, collars, etc. as you would from drafting the block from scratch.
An intensive day, giving you the knowledge you need to get – the fit just right!!!
