This how-to lecture-demo focuses on altering commercial patterns so that they fit real people and accommodate those figure challenges that we all face. Many excellent books on the subject were written in the 1950s and 1960s, when home sewn garments were far more common than they are nowadays, and the techniques suggested by these sewing mavens have not diminished in their usefulness over the last fifty years. Fascinatingly, they apply equally well to all manner of garments and sewing. Let us clue you in to some of the best secrets around for achieving a truly professional look and fit in a garment that you’ve created yourself. Powerpoint and flip chart required (we can provide the flip chart if need be).
