Pattern Fitting Workshop

This 3-day workshop will address basic upper body pattern adjustments based on your body type.  We will cover common alterations, including lengthening/shortening, bust adjustments, rounded upper back, shoulder width, sleeve girth, and waist and hip allowances.  Choose between the Cashmerette Vernon shirt pattern or the Liesl and Co. Camp Shirt pattern, based on your body type and measurements.  Both patterns have built-in bust cup size options.  Plan to spend the first day, and maybe part of the second day, taking accurate body measurements, making pattern adjustments and sewing a muslin sample garment.  Wear proper undergarments and a close fitting t-shirt or tank top, and leggings or tights for accurate measurements.  You may change into comfy clothes once the measurements are taken.
