In this series, we'll be working with the Woven Essentials pattern by Alison Glass.  We'll focus on basic pattern fitting skills:  taking measurements, selecting the right pattern size, making and using a muslin to customize fit, transferring changes to your pattern, basic construction techniques.

Topics you can elect:  

  • Taking your measurements and using them to select the proper pattern size.  Also, blending sizes is addressed.
  • How to make a muslin, what markings you should put on the muslin as you're sewing it, what fit changes you might want to make to the pattern itself before you make your muslin.
  • Fitting the muslin and transferring the fit changes back to the paper pattern.
  • Making full bust adjustments or small bust adjustments (this pattern is sized for B-C cup)
  • How to shorten or lengthen various areas for better fit.  For example, bust dart placement, waistline placement, neckline and shoulder adjustments.
  • Basic construction techniques:
    • Sewing and pressing darts so they won't get 'pointy'
