Fitting Matters

Sewing is so much more fun when you know your garment will fit. By studying the way your muslin mockup wrinkles and folds on the body, you can tell whether there’s too much fabric or not enough, where to add or take away, and how to make a well-fitted garment that looks good and feels good to wear.

  • tape measure

  • straight pins

  • seam ripper

  • washable fabric marker or chalk pencil

  • pattern making paper

  • tape

  • Notebook and pencil

  • Optional but helpful: curved fashion ruler or flexible ruler

  • A muslin mockup ready to try on and fit - PREP BEFORE CLASS - Please choose a basic, fitted pattern with simple style lines. Cut out your mockup in muslin or scrap fabric (old sheets work great!) Sew it together with machine basting stitches. Omit hems, buttonholes, and other finishing details. This mockup will be used for fitting purposes only and will not turn into a finished garment.

  • BRING your original pattern with you to class

*No sewing machine required during class*
