We judge a pattern by its fit and whether it flatters our figure. Do you find that commercial patterns are created with one body shape in mind, and that shape is never yours? Get the most out of your store-bought patterns by learning Joe’s techniques that will help you alter any pattern to fit and flatter your body shape, using a dress form. Learn what adjustments you can make to any commercial pattern that has a “horrible” fit on your body shape. Those badly fit garments will be a thing of the past and soon become flattering to your figure when you implement Joe’s techniques. You will be working hands-on in this team challenge.  At the end of class Joe will announce which team’s dress form has achieved the best fitting pattern. Prizes will be awarded to the winning team!
