Students learn basic pattern alteration techniques. In this class each student will try on sample jackets (39 jackets available petite – plus sizes in five styles) We will determine which sizes fit best and customize the jacket pattern. Each student will then cut out and baste a muslin jacket. We will custom fit the muslin jacket until we have a perfect fit. Any changes will be marked on the paper pattern for a permanent custom fit pattern. The muslin jacket pieces can then be used as a foundation base for a perfectly fitted, figure flattering, bargello jacket. This foundation base may be used for the next class in Joan’s jacket series “The Bargello Jacket”, or for a jacket of your own design. Basic sewing skills needed.
