FORMAT - Hands-on

TUTOR - Janet Elmes (read about tutorjanet.likes.to.sew@gmail.com

SKILL LEVEL - all levels welcome

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION  - Janet will introduce Connie Crawford's patterns, which have been draped onto real women, not using flat pattern techniques.  This method gives real fit to real women, no matter your size or shape.  Connie's fit will change the way you sew and restore the joy of sewing, so you can just "cut it out, sew it up and wear it"!

Each participant will be fitted into a blouse block to their measurements and suited to their shape.  Then a personalised block pattern will be created which will form the basis of future patterns and enable students to design their own garments.

Various methods for using the blouse block will be discussed, and pattern-making resources explained.

Blending patterns and dart rotation will also be explored.  A French dart, collar and shirt placket will be designed to work with the blouse block to create a complete blouse pattern.

The only requirement for this class is a desire to have well fitting clothes!
