Getting that perfect fit has always been tricky. Most commercial patterns are based on a B/C cup and unrealistic proportions betwen bust, waist and hips so if you are outside this range this course will really help. This is an element of dress making that I am always being asked about so I have developed a one day course to take you step by step through the process of adjusting a standard pattern to really fit your shape. We will look at how to alter both darted and princess seam bodice patterns and you will produce your own fitted muslin and pattern piece that can be taken home and used for future projects.  


On booking I will ask for some key measurements from you simply to ensure I can provide the pattern appropriate to your size.


Sessions are kept to a maximum of 4 people to ensure everyone can learn at their own pace. Groups and parties welcome see the Special Sessions page.
