Sure Fit Designs
Pattern Fitting - The Dress Bodice and Pants
Achieve excellent-fitting patterns in this pattern fitting workshop, using the Sure-Fit Designs™ pattern system. You will draft your own personal pattern, your body blueprint (sloper), based on your unique measurements thus achieving an excellent fitting pattern.
This innovative pattern drafting and fitting system allows you to easily make a single set of blueprint patterns that is uniquely yours. From this pattern you can launch your own well-fitted wardrobe! The workshop will include design tips and techniques to set you free to take control of your own individual style.
Your reward? Using the versatile Sure-Fit Designs™ Dress Kit, you will have the foundation for the most basic items in your closet: skirts, dresses, tops, blouses and jackets. Your patternmaking will be easy and fun because Sure-Fit Designs™ took all the technical, math-y chores out of your work and provided an easy process and ingenious tools to help you achieve your desired wardrobe.
Erica Doyle has been certified and authorized to teach hands-on pattern fitting and design classes to our students using the Sure-Fit Designs™ system of pattern fitting and sewing.
