Learn how to fit clothing well to your own unique body shape. Make an adjusted pattern that you can use for future projects.
We're all different shapes and sizes. Thankfully. So, when it comes to making your own clothing from a set pattern, it can sometimes get a bit tricky. That's why in this two-day practical masterclass, we're going to show you some tried and tested methods for fitting clothes to your own unique body and getting great fit.
Students will learn an iterative process for creating the best fit: Firstly by making initial adjustments to their paper pattern, which is used as a basis for making a toile. The toile is then used to determine further adjustments, which are finally transferred back to the paper pattern. This process and the pattern created can then be used as a template for tackling future fitting issues, modifying commercial patterns, or designing your own garments.
