About This Class

SUNDAY, JULY 28, 2:30-5:30 PM Level: Advanced beginner - it is recommended that you have some experience with sewing garments. Ages: 16+ We provide: Expert instruction; basic supplies such as pencils and tape for flat pattern alteration. You 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. Total instruction time: 3 hours Cost: $59 In this clinic-style workshop, you will learn about making adjustments to paper sewing patterns. Garment sewing expert Eliza West will help you adjust the fit or style of a pattern of your choice. She will walk you through identifying fit issues on a muslin or finished garment you have already made, then show you how to transfer any necessary alterations back to the flat pattern pieces. You will leave ready to sew a great-fitting version of the garment. 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. Notion operates on Western Abenaki land.
