Beginning Fit for Real People

This class is for those who sew well, but need fitting help OR for those who
have just learned to sew and want to continue by learning fitting skills. You will learn basic fit
principles as you fit and begin to sew a shirt. Learn to choose the right size pattern and how to
prepare it for tissue fitting. Learn what alterations you need for your body and how to make
those changes for a flattering, perfect fit. We'll cut and then fit your shirt in the fabric you have
chosen. The teacher is a Palmer/Pletsch Certified Fit Instructor. Lunch is on your own.
