Fast-Track Fitting
Designer Joi Mahon shows how to measure yourself and alter a pattern before you sew a stitch. Save time and fabric by getting your fitting done first!

Using the included Vogue pattern, you'll learn how to alter your flat pattern pieces from top to bottom. You'll love making commercial patterns fit you perfectly without multiple muslin fittings. Joi shares her industry-insider knowledge with a fun, friendly and easy-to-follow teaching style that will give you the confidence to tackle fit – without having fits!

Lesson 10. The Final Fit

"I thoroughly enjoyed this class and have learned a LOT! Joi is very patient and thoroughly answers any questions. I watched the entire video and have gone back to the beginning to watch it again - I am about halfway through (the second round). I am finding that things are even clearer the second go-round. I would suggest watching the entire course at least twice, especially for those finding it difficult to follow. Her approach makes perfect sense! Thanks, Joi!"
