Know how to sew garments, but struggle with getting the fit right?  Have a whole pile of patterns you want to sew, if only you could get them fitted?  This is the class for you!

It’s very difficult to fit garments on yourself, so in this class you’ll do it with the expert help of the  teacher.

Over the course of the class we’ll take the patterns that you want to make up, identify and work through the pre-cutting alterations and fit-fixes that need to be made to the pattern to achieve a perfect fit, and then make up toiles of the garments, and finessing the fit in toile form.

Throughout the course you’ll learn not only through your own garments, but through the fits and alterations that are being done on other student’s garments.

How many garments you get fitted will depend on the complexity of the patterns you choose, the complexity of the fit-issues we tackle, and how much work you do outside of class.  Depending on these factors, you may only get one patterns fit sorted, or you may get 8 patterns completely fitted and ready to be sewn up.

A note: Some patterns are very poorly drafted, or so difficult to successfully fit to certain body types without completely re-drafting and fundamentally altering the design of the pattern that I may recommend that it is not worth continuing to attempt to fit the pattern.

This class is not a pattern re-sizing class: it is for finessing the fit of patterns that are already in your size.

High Intermediate = Suitable for those advanced-intermediate and higher sewing experience.  Students should be completely confident in sewing garments independently.

Cost: $150 (includes 1.5 meters of patterning tissue, and two meters of fitting calico)

Materials: Students should bring any patterns they want help fitting, and any toiles or projects they have already started that they want assistance with fit, as well as the undergarments they would wear under the finished garment, so that we can fit over the correct shape.

To register for the class, please email Leimomi with your name, a contact number and the name of the class you’d like to be in as the subject line.
