Fit for Real People with Tamra

This is an in-depth class on tissue fitting bodices and skirts. You will learn
to choose the right size pattern and how to prepare it for tissue fitting. Learn the proper order
for making fit alterations and what alterations you need for your body. Then we will learn to
make those changes for a flattering, perfect fit. We'll begin with fitting the basic pattern, then
apply these principles to any commercial patterns that you wish to fit. There will be time to do

and fabric fitting on Feb. 10. If you attend all three classes, the Princess Fit class on Feb. 17 is
