Hi Sarah

Are there any recommended patterns for this class? Or could I is either to refine the fit of a sloper (you know, the one I am planning to draft any day now!)

Regards

Hi Austragirl,

As I say in the complete class description, you can work on pattern that you want. Once you've registered for the class, there is information on selecting the best size to start with, and some information about whether to work on a garment pattern or a sloper -- either is fine, it just depends on what you want to accomplish and how you approach garment sewing.

Please let me know if you have any other questions!

Sarah,
I have been intrigued with the "how-to's" of fitting for years & understand how critical it is that each part of a garment conform to the body wearing it. I live alone & don't have the luxury of partnering with someone to help with fitting, but I do have a dress form that's replicates my figure closely enough. Is this class designed so that I can do fitting without a partner to help?

Thanks.
Nancy

Hi Nancy,

Yes, you can get a lot of fitting accomplished on your own. (I do the majority of my own fitting.) In the class I give you quite a number of tips of fitting yourself. And having a dress form will help you along the way, although it's important of course to see the garment on your own body.

Let me know if you have other questions.

Does this class address broad back adjustments and small front chest with larger bust adjustments?

frame maker,

Yes, it does. I don't approach fitting by first diagnosing the issue on the body (as you have done) and then explaining what adjustments to make. Rather, I suggest that you read the muslin on the body and see what the cloth is doing. If these are your problem areas, you'll indeed focus there, and my method will lead you to correcting these areas. And each of these areas of the body are addressed in detail.

Please let me know if you have more questions. Hope to see you in the class!

Cherebelle,

There is not a DVD -- but you can watch the videos and read the PDF files as often as you wish and for as long as you wish via the PR website.
