Saturday, July 13th: "Fitting Solutions" with Leslie Ashcraft, 1:00pm - 4:30pm, $50

http://www.nobhillfabrics.com/classes/Fitting_Solutions.html

3-hour session by Leslie Ashcraft cost - $50 class size limited to 6

Are you tired of buying pattern after pattern, searching for "the one" that actually 
fits?  Or, have you stopped sewing for yourself entirely because your garments gap 
open at the center front or hang like muumuus?  This fitting class has been created 
exclusively to help women identify what has changed about their maturing female 
forms and how those changes are reflected in the fit of their garments.  (For this 
session, we will concentrate mainly on the female form from the waist up.)  After 
this class, you will know what has been causing your fitting disasters and what 
pattern alterations are necessary to prevent any more.

Supply list:

Sewing machine, thread, pins, scissors and cloth tape measure.

4 yards of 45" or 60" white muslin fabric, an indelible sharpie marker, a quilter’s 
straightedge and a jacket pattern of your choice.  (Be realistic about your size; 
alterations are easier if you're somewhat close.  Keep in mind that for purposes of 
creating a well-fitting, structured jacket, darting and princess lines are your 
friends!)

NOTE:  If you plan to take the next "Jackets" class, please use Butterick 5687:
        http://butterick.mccall.com/b5687-products-14759.php?page_id=147

With the help of the teacher, you will recognize your figure challenges, alter your 
jacket pattern accordingly and begin preparing a jacket muslin.  

A $25 deposit is required to hold your place.
