Discover the art of precision in garment fitting with a unique hands-on experience led by expert fitter and designer, Joe Vecchiarelli. In this immersive draping workshop, you will transcend the limitations of flat patterns and embark on a journey to tailor a three-dimensional masterpiece that perfectly complements your unique three-dimensional figure.
Join Joe as he guides you through the process of transforming your dress form into a personalized bodice sloper – essentially, your body double. The adventure begins with the careful padding of your dress form, ensuring an accurate reflection of your individual contours. With Joe's expertise and hands-on support, you will gain invaluable insights into overcoming the challenges of creating a dress form that authentically mirrors your shape.
Throughout the morning, let your body measurements serve as the foundation for your creation, and benefit from Joe's insightful demonstrations and personalized assistance. This exclusive opportunity promises to be a priceless investment in crafting a dress form that genuinely looks like your mirror image.
Once your dress form is perfected, it becomes the canvas on which you will drape your very own bodice sloper. Explore the basics of draping as you translate your vision into fabric, giving life to what will soon become your go-to pattern fitting block.
Please refer to the Supply List for specific dress form requirements, ensuring you are well-prepared to embark on this transformative journey of self-expression and tailoring expertise.
