Sewing is so much more fun when you know that what you are making will fit. But how do you know that? Whether you are new to sewing or a seasoned sewist, fitting can be challenging. Learn what to look for in a pattern to get closer to a good fit, how to see what changes to make, and how to make them. This hands-on class will help you translate the theory and numbers of pattern alteration into a garment that fits.
