This was a day before class at the Atlanta Sewing Expo. It cost $200 and is the best money I ever spent. I have a pants pattern that FITS and feels good.

The class requires that you use Cynthia's pants fitting book (it is sent to you beforehand with your Expo info) and a pants pattern of your choice for your homework. You work through the measuring, math and marking up the pattern and create a muslin to take to class for "tweaking". (I did 7 before I came up with one I wasn't embarassed to take to class) This is essential to the success of the class. You don't want to take class time to do basic sewing you can figure out on your own.

There were 15 ladies in the class and we each left with a muslin that fit. We each put on our muslin and Cynthia pinned and fitted as we all watched and asked questions. We saw her fit a large variety of "problems", including our own, and learned a great deal. We would make the changes she showed us, try the muslin back on and she would "tweak" them again.

This class is a must if you wish to sew well fitting pants for yourself.

Hi! I have two muslins done my class is in Cleveland in only 11 days... Don't think I can get 5 more done... but I am thinking I should do one more. Just having a deadline and a taskmaker has sent me to the cutting table instead of just thinking 'some day I will do this'. I had a shirtmaking Day Before class with C.G. many years ago and it was top shelf. I am looking forward to having an altered pattern for me. Thank you for the encouragement. I just can't decide what type pant I want at the end. Jeans or tailored dress pants... or a pant with a contour waist. I could easily make use of all three types. Thank you for the encouragement.. can you post your results as a photo? What pattern -meaning what type pant did you choose? Thank you! Nancy R.

Thanks - this class sounds like a winner. I took a short class with her on collars and could see she's gifted. Years ago I had a sloper made for me with the help of a Danish dress maker and I had clothes that really fit correctly. So, next year at the Tampa EXPO I'm hoping Cynthia Guffey wiill have the class you write about so I can go - thanks!
