Can you sew simple garments, but often struggle with achieving a good fit on your projects? Maybe you are full or small busted, or have a broad back, narrow shoulders or full thighs…fitting issues can be endless!

Because of their extensive dressmaking and pattern cutting experience, our tutors can help you address and fix any fitting issue you may be struggling with. Just bring one of your sewing projects along with your pattern. This can be either a toile you’ve been working on, a garment you have already cut or a pattern you’d like to make up. During the class you will be shown how to make alterations to your garment/toile and pattern to achieve a perfect fit!

*Please bring a length of calico or extra fabric in case your garment or toile needs to be recut.

This class is not suitable for beginners. You will need to have previously completed some simple sewing and dressmaking projects and have an understanding of garment construction.

*Please arrive 5 minutes early to allow time to settle and ensure prompt start. There will be tea and biscuits to keep you going sweetly though the session!
