|Here are some details about my project:|
What materials did you use? -Tissue for pattern making - Fitting Shell pattern: For Fast-Track class Vogue 1004 ( I used Butterick B5746) -Muslin Fabric for final fitting -Ideally, a dress form made of duct tape with your body shape if you don't have a helper to take your body measurements
What are you most proud of? After this class with Joi Mahon, I am not afraid of fitting anymore. Finally, after so many years figuring out what areas I need to alter for my unique body shape and type... this visual and organized class really helped. Now I can focus on finishing garments that really fit!
What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you are new to fitting and understanding commercial pattern alterations, you should take this class and "Sew the Perfect fit" with Linda Maynard. I feel that by having both approaches to pattern fitting opens up your mind and you develop an eye for understanding body proportions, body shapes, and identifying quickly where do you need to add or subtract wether you work on a muslin or on your flat pattern. Craftsy has done a great job designing and organizing this classes. I hope you see the benefits immediately like I did.
