|This was a two-part, all day affair with Peggy Sagers. The first 4 hours were dedicated to fitting a pants muslin and the second 2 hours included a trunk show and expose of upcoming fabric and styles.
The fitting class was very sparsely attended, but great for those of us who did. I even took a day off work! With 3 students, there was considerable dedicated attention.
Everyone brought in a basted muslin, which Peggy then pin fit for each of us. It was great to finally see how all the modifications I'd read about worked in real life. There were all figure types in the class, so everyone got to see how other changes were done.
Once pin-fitted, we stitched the alterations in our muslins and wandered around class in them, to be certain everything was tweaked to our personal satisfaction. Peggy made any changes requested, as well as offering suggestions and tips on stylistic (as opposed to fit) modifications.
The last of the fitting seminar showed us how to use our new muslins with purchased patterns: lining things up and making the changes, modifying fit for different styles, adding pockets, etc.
If Peggy Sagers ever comes to your part of town, I highly recommend her classes. It was a day well spent!
