Re-sizing patterns thedreamstress

This class will solve all of those problems, but teaching simple, easy methods for re-sizing patterns to your size.

Over the course of the class we’ll work through two basic methods for re-sizing different types of patterns (fitted dresses, skirts, pants, blouses etc.).  We’ll also cover how to re-size if you are a different size across different measurements, as well as basic fitting adjustments such as wide/narrow shoulder adjustments, full & small bust adjustments etc, which you can do on your pattern before cutting into it.

Using the methods taught, you’ll be able to take most patterns, and re-size them to your size.

Note that this is class focuses on re-sizing for the home sewer, and will NOT be teaching formal pattern grading to industry standards.

This class is suitable for most sewing levels, from low intermediate upwards.

Materials: students should bring at least two patterns they wish to re-size, a notebook, writing implements.  All other materials will be provided.

Cost: $95 (includes patterning tissue)
