I'd like to take the class and participate in the chats. I need to download Sun Java and all the options confuse me. Do I need J2SE5.0 (my guess) or what?

Subject: Sloper Date: 11/14/05 6:33 AM

Shannon,

I'm interested in taking this class as part of my 2005 New Year's Sewing Resolution--nail down those fitting issues that have been plaguing me.

I made a Duct Tape Dressform in Jean Haas' class and am taking her Personal Ease 101 in a few days to make an ease shell for it as well.

Do you think this class would be a good one to complement what I'm learning in the Personal Ease one? It seems like it will based on the class description. Can I use my McCall's sloper pattern I've started working on to create a muslin to fine tune my fitting issues? That's really what I'm interested in doing.

------
Big 4 Pattern size 12, RTW bottom: 6, RTW jacket 8, RTW top (no size fits me well!)
Measurements: 34 HB/36 FB (34C bra)/27.5/36 (and working hard to keep it that way.)
Machines: Sewing/Embroidery Combo Machine: Janome MC15000. Sewing Machines: Elna 740, vintage Kenmore Model 33 (1967), Janome Gem Gold 3. Sergers: Babylock Imagine and Babylock Enlighten. Embroidery Only: Janome 300E

If you think your sewing is better than everyone else's around here, get out of my way b****. I hate sewing snobs.

Yes. This is a fitting class, and it will definitely do what you want it to do. I think it will fit in beautifully with the personal ease class.

Will we be using a certain pattern? What level of fitting experience is needed for the class? What supplies will be needed?

Subject: Re: class info. Date: 11/15/05 1:58 PM

You can use any bodice style pattern (jacket, blouse, tee, dress) for this class. You can be an "intermediate beginner"...by that, I mean that you do need to know how to measure, follow pattern instructions, and have a basic knowledge of what I'm talking about when I say "the darts are in the wrong place".
Supplies are listed on the class description, but basically are your chosen pattern, muslin or cheap fabric for making your test garment, and general sewing supplies. If you want to send a photo for help with fit, you'll need a digital camera. That's about it:)

Hi, Shannon- I'm not a great searcher, but I cannot find the supplies list on the class description - just your general reference in a response here.

We're traveling now, will return home the 27th, so if there's anything else in particular, I'd need to be sure to have it early.

thanks - Annie

Class supplies:
A pattern for a bodice-type garment of your choosing. This can be a jacket, shirt, blouse, dress. You may choose as many patterns as you think you can fit in the class time allotted.
Pants will not be covered in this particular class (I'm saving that for a separate class, as there are many more fitting issues with pants.)
Muslin or inexpensive fabric for testing your pattern.
General sewing supplies (machine, thread, needles, scissors, etc.)
A digital camera (if you choose to post photos for fitting help)
Paper, pencil, markers

Subject: Movement ease in a muslin? Date: 11/21/05 5:08 PM

Hi Shannon,
I'm interested in taking your class on muslins. I'm mainly interested because I'd like to figure out how to alter my woven tops to include movement ease...so that I can raise my arms comfortably. Would this class be appropriate for that kind of alteration?

Thanks,
Kim

Yes. Are you planning to wear these tops during a sport activity? Or do you just want to add sufficient ease for the everyday raising of arms?
