Bellies, Boobs, Butts and Backs! These are the four main areas of our bodies that can give us our "Fitting Fits!" There are 88 different figures variations (not problems) that one should become familiar with. This hands-on class will be the beginning for you in building a pattern alteration reference file. We will work with half-scale practice patterns and learn how to alter for some common variations in these four areas using the new seam method of alteration. You will learn how to alter for a figure with more than one variation. You will learn how important it is to follow the length before width rule. Multiple figure adjustments will be demonstrated and practiced! Your clothes may begin to fit so will you will LOVE sewing garments again! Our sewing industry needs you!
