Altering a Pattern   (I, A )

3 people could measure to be a size 10,  yet all three are different shapes and heights.  This class shows you how to take a pattern in your size and “tweak” it to fit your specific body shape. Learn what “ease” is and how it affects the fit of your pattern.  We’ll use a pattern of your choice to make length and width adjustments using the multi size lines on your pattern. THERE IS NO SEWING in this class. 30 minute break for lunch, supplies required

Prerequisite: 102 How to use a pattern

Supply List: altering a pattern supply list
