Renowned fit expert and author of Dressmaker's Handbook of Couture Sewing Techniques, in her all day seminar Lynda will fit upto 4 garments (time permitting) on our live fit models. She will start with an A-Line Skirt, moving on to the Sheath, Pants and a Jacket! 4 volunteers will bring their pre-sewn muslins to the seminar and Lynda will show us how to fit them right there. She will then demonstrate how to transfer the alteration on the pattern pieces. During lunch break, we will have practice workstations so people can try those alterations on half-scale patterns. Lynda will be available to answer questions during this time.
