Focus On Fit-Pant Fit & Sew
In this 4-session course for confident beginners you will learn to sew a perfectly-fitting pair of pants using the Palmer/Pletsch Tissue-Fitting Method of pattern altering. I recommend the workshop-tested Palmer/Pletsch for McCall's pattern 6901-a perfect pant pattern for learning fit.
We will start with a presentation that walks you through all the pant fit basics and covers fabrics and notions, too. You will tissue fit and alter your pattern, cut from fabric, insert zippers and sew crotch seams, pin fit and learn to fit as you sew for the very best results. Some cutting and/or sewing homework may be assigned between weeks 3 & 4. You can change up this basic pant in numerous ways and make it your lower body road map.
Helen is a Palmer/Pletsch Certified Instructor and Educator with years of experience. You will enjoy her light-hearted, friendly approach to teaching. We have a supply list at the store that may be emailed to you.
