Join Suzy Furrer for a day of fitting and trouble-shooting garments, slopers and patterns. Bring up to 2 garments to fit. The garments (or slopers) should be mocked up in muslin or knit. Or, if you have a garment you have sewn in fashion fabric that isn't not quite up to your standards, we can fit that too.
Each of the attendees will show one garment and as time permits, we will go around the group again for garment number 2. All students will benefit from watching and learning how each garment is considered and fit.
I will show you how to bring those fit corrections to your patterns. Bring your questions on appropriate fabric choice, industry standards, pattern making and questions about the fashion industry. Time permitting we will have a fun discussion on the history of pattern making. Looking forward to meeting all of you!
Students should bring 1 to 2 mock ups to fit. These garments can be slopers or items of clothing. Please bring the patterns as well. Bring pins, ruler, drafting curve, tape measure, scissors (paper and fabric), pencils (colored and lead). Bringing a basic sewing and drafting kit could be useful.
