This intensive one-day class is designed for students who know how to sew, but want to learn how to make a dress that fits beautifully. Working with the dress pattern of your choice, our experienced instructor will teach show you tips and techniques for taking accurate measurements, making a muslin, evaluating fit, basic pattern adjustments (blending between sizes, bust adjustments, lengthening/shortening) and altering your pattern. You'll leave class with a finished muslin and a corrected pattern so you can make the dress of your dreams at home!

Students are welcome to bring two patterns to class - depending on your personal pace you may be able to start the fitting process on a second pattern.
