Learn to Tissue Fit and Fabric Fit
In this 2-day class you will learn to tissue fit a simple blouse. We will give you a comprehensive presentation of The Palmer/Pletsch Tissue-Fitting Method. You’ll measure for size, tissue-fit a blouse or shirt pattern, alter it to fit you, then cut from fabric and pin-fit to make minor adjustments. The alterations made on this blouse will show how you differ from a commercial pattern.
Learn to choose the best interfacing for your fabric and properly fuse the interfacing to the facings. You may tissue-fit additional style tops if time allows.
Mini Sewing Vacations are limited to 6 students per instructor.
The workshop includes lunch, the Palmer/Pletsch “Perfect Shirt” blouse pattern Butterick 6842, and 14 hours of instruction.
This workshop is held at Sew-Op + Maker Space in Vancouver, WA, across the Columbia River from Portland.
