Hi folks,
I am new to this site- it is so wonderful to see/hear folks discuss sewing topics I have questions about. I have been sewing since 7th grade, taught by my mom. Started sewing again in recent years ( age 55) and am frustrated by my own limitations - making a blouse and want it to fit - size 6/8 with Dcup. I have searched for a construction course to no avail. Does anybody know of any "unadvertised" folks who would be willing to teach me some basic fitting/pattern altering or making? I have actually contacted a few folks locally, but they were not experts, really, and were not helpful.
Thank you for any assistance you can offer.
Paula

Go to the ASG.org site and see if there is a chapter near you. If not, ask if some from the nearest chapter can contact you.
Many ASG members love to teach any adpect of sewing and know their areas and whats available.
Its at least worth a try.
If you decide to join they have free web classes for their members.

I also took many of Sarah V's PR classes on fitting- she is terrific.
