Fitting Workshop - October 28th
Class description: There is nothing more disappointing than sewing a garment and finding that it doesn't fit. When clothing doesn't fit properly it can restrict motion, put strain on your fabric and shift around uncomfortably on your body. Learning to correct fitting issues is a skill set that will take your sewing to the next level.
Bring something you've sewn and the pattern you used to this workshop and we will map out the adjustments needed to get the perfect fit for next time.
If you'd like to embark on a new pattern and need guidance choosing a size, grading between sizes or making baseline adjustments or accommodations we can do that too, just bring the full, uncut pattern.
You'll leave with a traced off pattern and a clear roadmap for a successful next project.
Plus-sized (no upper size limit), trans and disabled sew-persons are especially welcomed. Fitting includes customizing your garment for accessibility and/or gender expression.
Skills you will learn: taking accurate measurements, reading a size chart and choosing a size, blending between sizes, sewing a muslin/test garment, transferring adjustments from muslin to pattern.
