tissue fittingDay One

The first day we will give you a comprehensive presentation of The Palmer/Pletsch Tissue-Fitting Method. Then we will do a store tour of best fabrics for sewing a blouse that you will love. Measure for size. Fill out a Fit Chart with suggested alterations. Tissue-fit a blouse and alter it to fit you. The alterations made on this blouse will show how you differ from a commercial pattern.

Day Two

Cut and pin-fit fabric. Tweak the fit in fabric. There is always some tweaking do in fabric because you are fitting both sides of your body and every fabric fits a bit differently. Learn to choose the best interfacing for your fabric and properly fuse the interfacing to the facings. You may sew the blouse or tissue-fit additional style tops.

Included: The Palmer/Pletsch blouse pattern McCall’s 6750, interfacing for the facings, lunch, and 17 hours of instruction.

There are also fabrics, interfacings, and notions available for sale at the store at a student discount.

Mini Sewing Vacations are limited to 6 students per instructor.

Take Fashion Fitting The Upper Body again.

The study of fit is ongoing. As fashion changes, there are new fit challenges. You will have two full days to tissue-fit and fabric-fit any top or dress patterns you desire. Bring questions you want answered, and plan to spend time watching others being fit—there is much to learn in that process!

And again, and again…

Continue to refine and MASTER your fitting and sewing skills under our expert guidance. If you teach fit, you will want to watch even more bodies being fitted and more alteration challenges tackled. You will truly achieve your masters in fit!
