Live sustainably and learn to darn!
Or make a cute new project!


Just 2 spaces left!

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.

Thursdays 6:00 – 9:00 February 27, March 5, 12


Is there a classic shirt on your list of projects? The Granville Shirt from Sewaholic Patterns (pear shapes) or Harrison from Cashmerette (more curvy, full bust) have front bust dart (princess seams for Harrison), back yoke and back princess seams for optimal fitting options.  Try it out of stretch cotton if you are looking for something more comfy. Great pattern instructions and drafting for collar, stand and cuffs.  

This is a sew along so while there will be fitting help, we will focus on collar, cuff and placket techniques to be sure the shirt is completed.

Skill Level: Intermediate
Fee: $70
Instructors: Material Girls Debbie & Kristin
