Having a pattern that fits so it is both flattering and comfortable is every garment sewer's dream because you can then sew with confidence, knowing that your garment will be successful. Join fitting expert and author of The Complete Photo Guide to Perfect Fitting, Sarah Veblen, for this 2-day workshop, and you'll come away with a bodice that fits you beautifully!

All fitting will be done by Sarah, and class size is limited to 6, so she will have ample time to give each participant at least two fittings each day. Anyone with good sewing skills (advanced beginner) is welcome. Some knowledge of making pattern adjustments is helpful, but Sarah will demonstrate how to transfer the fitting changes from the muslin to the pattern as well as her method of making the pattern adjustments.

By the end of the workshop, you can expect to have one well-fitting bodice pattern, and many will also have a well-fitting sleeve (depending on your patternmaking skills and the speed at which you work). You'll also come away with a foundational knowledge of fitting and pattern skills that you can apply to fitting other bodice patterns.

You can work on any bodice you choose: a shirt, blouse, jacket, or the bodice portion of a dress. Sarah will okay your pattern selection via email prior to class. Upon registration, you will receive a supply list and complete instructions on marking and sewing your muslin/mock-up.

A worktable and chair will be provided for each participant, and there will be a large cutting station and an ironing station for all to share. You will need to bring you own sewing machine.
