Description

Are you frustrated with trying to fit your own sewing patterns?  Join me at the CWA rooms in Coolamon for a day of confidence-boosting, instructive guidance in making the right alterations to create a well-fitted dress.

In this 4 hour pattern-fitting workshop, I’ll demonstrate how to make changes to commercial dress patterns to improve the overall fit and balance. Students are required to arrive at class with a fully or partially-made calico (or similar) dress toile/sample so that the fitting sessions can begin immediately. This preparation step is assumed knowledge, so please note that if you do not come to class with a toile or sample you have started to sew, you will not be able to gain the full benefit of the class.

This class is for sewers with enough sewing skills to complete a dress toile or sample for fitting during the session.

All the pattern alterations discussed will be detailed in a worksheet that students will receive to take home at the end of the class.

Student numbers are kept low (max. 10) to improve your one-on-one time with Anita.

Lunch - we have a microwave, fridge and kettle if you'd like to bring your own. There'll be a half hour break in class so you're welcome to stretch your legs and grab something to eat just across the road at the many fabulous Coolamon cafes.

What you will learn
  • How to analyse the fit of a dress sample and identify the alterations needed to achieve a good fit.
  • How to take accurate and detailed body measurements for a great dress fit.
  • How to alter your pattern for your own fitting issues.
What you will get
  • There will be fitting demonstration on all students in the room to show the potential dress fit issues all in one place.
  • Demonstrations of the most common pattern alteration for fitting dresses.
  • A detailed worksheet with all the pattern alterations required to make a well-fitted dress.

What to bring
  • A fully or partially completed dress for the fitting sessions at the beginning of the session. It’s a good idea to at least have all seams finished and a zip inserted for optimal fitting conditions. Do not use a precious or expensive fabric for this fitting, as many of the alterations for dresses are made to the pattern and we may not be able to fully save your fitting sample. Calico is an excellent option for this purpose.
  • A ruler, pencil, eraser, glue stick, tape measure, pins and paper scissors.
  • Your sewing kit and sewing machine if you think you'd like to try some alterations during the session.
What to wear

Please wear closed shoes, we are keen to keep your toes safe.
