Do you have trouble buying or sewing clothes that fit your body shape?  

Do standard sewing patterns need lots of changes to make them fit?

Do you want to make your own drafting blocks that flatter your figure?

Our new Fit And Flatter course will help you to create a set of basic pattern blocks to fit your measurements perfectly. This detailed course will work step by step through how to pattern-draft a skirt, bodice and sleeve block to make up the basic dress foundation as well as a pants block for shorts and longer pants. Students will also test out their blocks by sewing a toile for fitting.

At the end of the course, students will have drafted their own basic dress foundation which they can alter, fit, and design to their desired style. Creating blocks with professional guidance makes this course exceptionally rewarding.

Techniques covered include-: body measurements and figure analysis, introduction to pattern-drafting by drafting a basic pattern set for personal use, understanding elements of patterns and marking them appropriately and creating a toile (fit sample) for each block and learning how to fit and make necessary adjustments.

Please note that this class involves discussing your body shape, taking measurements and is hands on in a class/group environment.
