Classes Comimg Up! Pants Fitting, Quilting, Pockets, and More!


Looking for a perfect fit? Let's make pants that fit like they were made for you. We will draft a sloper based on each student's individual measurements using a system created at the American Fashion Institute and cut a muslin the first session. You will assemble the muslin and bring it along to session two. We will work together to fit each muslin and demonstrate how to use your sloper to adjust commercial patterns. Students should have sewing experience and understanding of garment construction. Suggested prerequisite: Make It Fit or experience with pattern alteration.

This fun shirt is made without a pattern, but sized according to your measurements. How does that work? Made from 6 fat quarters of fabric, it gives you the opportunity to stretch your creativity by mixing fabrics. You will also stretch your skills as it works best in something drapey, like rayon batik or softer cotton voile.
