The Fitting Class offered by Sarah Veblen is terrific. The class meets from 9-6:00 with an hour lunch break (approximately).

The first part of the day Sarah lectures on the principles of fit. She gives a great deal of detail as well as visual aids and exercises to help the student increase their understanding of the problems and solutions of fit.

The second part of the day is spent fitting. Each day a different aspect of fit was covered from a basic straight skirt to a bodice and sleeve.

By the end of the forth day I can assure you you will walk away with more fit knowledge then you can imagine and also the confident to practice fitting and gain new skill at assessing good fit and being able to achieve it.

As with all of Sarah Veblen's classes, she is tremendously encouraging of the person she teaches and goes way above the subject matter at hand. For instance, during the class she touched upon how design is incorporated into fit and how to apply a critical, yet gentle, eye to the person being fit so both comfort and beauty are achieved for the individual.

Lastly Sarah Veblen consistently instills confidence in the students she is teaching. I have heard many state that before her classes they were nervous or doubtful of their abilities and after learning from Sarah had the assurance to go forward and sew with ease. (Pun intended.)

Sounds like a wonderful class by Sarah. I'd love to be able to take one of her classes in person - especially this one! Lucky you!
