Maker's Hideaway

This is an All-Inclusive Fitting Retreat at Makers Hideaway

NOTE: The prerequisite for this workshop is “Fit and Sew Pants”, and “Fit Sewing Patterns” or “Fashion Fit the Upper Body”

COVID-19 PROTOCOL: Workshops in this location require attendees to provide proof of a COVID vaccination.
The situation can change. Check in with your instructor about any additional requirements, such as masking.

Check in to Makers Hideaway on the afternoon of the first day, with a welcome and introduction at 5:00 pm, followed by dinner and an evening slide presentation. Classes end at 3:00 pm on the sixth day.

We will start with a review of upper body fit. Pati and Marta have continued to perfect the Palmer/Pletsch Tissue Fitting methods since the 1970s, all of which are in newest book The Palmer/Pletsch Complete Guide to Fitting. We also have a new princess tissue-fit design (Butterick B6850) if you want a princess “road map” as well.

On the third day we will do a pant fit. If it has been a while since you took a pant or fit workshop, you will find a wealth of new information and fit techniques.

You may want to redo your original fit patterns by starting out fitting the latest fit patterns for a new “road map of your body”, then you can alter additional designs, Palmer/Pletsch and others.

You can fit for knits or wovens, then cut out for a pin-fitting in fabric. You will go home with pin-fitted garments. No sewing during class, or you won’t have time to maximize fitting many designs. However, there is open sewing time available after hours. Since you are at a retreat, you can immerse yourself in the process 12 hours a day if you wish.
