About the event

Level: Advanced beginner/intermediate.

Ages: 16+

We provide:  Expert instruction; use of a sewing machine and basic supply kit; scrap muslin and tracing paper for pattern adjustments.

You bring: A muslin (test version) or completed handmade garment that you would like to fit better, AND the flat sewing pattern pieces for that garment.

Total instruction time: 3 hours

Cost:  $49

In this clinic-style workshop, garment sewing expert Eliza West will help you troubleshoot the fit of a handmade garment you choose to bring in. She will help you transfer any necessary alterations back to the flat pattern pieces. You will leave ready to sew a great-fitting version of the garament.

Please bring a muslin or finished handmade garment that you would like to fit better, AND the flat sewing pattern pieces for that garment. We will be cutting and altering the flat pattern, so you may wish to bring a traced copy. Please note that this is a fitting clinic to help you learn sewing pattern adjustments for handmade garments. We ask that you not bring off-the-rack garments in need of alteration.

Limited to 6 participants. Requires 3 participants to run. In the event of cancellation due to low enrollment, registered participants will receive notice and a refund 3 days prior to the scheduled start date of the series.
