Preventing Fitting Disasters
This class concentrates on the challenge of fitting patterns to your size. Work with your patterns to learn about personal ease and designer ease and take the guessing out of pattern measurement and fitting. We will cover basic pattern adjustments and fine tuning your fit to produce a well-fitting blouse or dress. Individual fitting tips will also be discussed as they relate to your pattern preferences. This class is a pre-requisite for the Advanced Construction classes.
