Workshop Description:
Looking for a pants pattern to work from that is both flattering and provides freedom of movement? Learn to do the fitting to achieve a custom fit in this special 2-day workshop! Using a muslin from a preexisting pattern (of your choice) with clean silhouette, students will work to do the necessary fitting adjustments on the body. Then transfer those changes to a new paper pattern.  Sometimes, a second test garment is required, so we will work through whatever is necessary so that your pattern is “proofed” and ready to be cut in fabric. Each student is expected to arrive with a properly prepared muslin of UNWASHED muslin, made from a pre-existing pattern with a clean silhouette and a 1” seam allowance, for marking and adjusting. Using this, we will work to achieve a great fit. Modifications and alterations to your new pattern will be addressed after a proper fit is achieved. Please bring a working sewing machine to class. **See supply list of items to bring to class**
