Discovery and Planning

It’s a buzz word (ok, term) you can just google, but we’re going to hold your hand to help you give it a try! After all, aren’t most of us sewing so that we’ve got a closet full of clothes that make us happy and make dressing fun? Or at least less stressful?

Session One: We’ll share our wardrobe capsules and discuss what works for different bodies and why, body shapes, colors, function, and more.
Homework: Go to your closet and answer the same questions for yourself – and have fun!
Session Two: Come to class with your homework and we’ll all evaluate and help you make a plan that works for you and your lifestyle. Patterns will be suggested!

Do you struggle with set-in sleeves? I did once too - but not anymore. Learn how to analyze your sleeve to see if you are starting with a well-drafted pattern to begin with and how to correct one that is not. Techniques that make construction easier are next, followed by fitting. Final bonus - learn how to decide if you can substitute one sleeve pattern for another.
