Frustrated with clothes that don't fit? Want a better fit from sewing patterns you've purchased or want to draft your own? In this two-day class you will learn how to make a bodice sloper - a simple flat pattern that perfectly matches the size and shape of your torso. Your sloper will tell you exactly how to adjust sewing patterns for a fit you will love, and you can even use it to make your own fitted tops! **Please note: this class is held over two consecutive days: Saturday you'll take intricate measurements and draft your bodice sloper, and Sunday you'll get to check for fit, place darts, and make adjustments! Student Materials: - Each student should try to bring a mechanical pencil & a large eraser. - A straight 12"+ ruler (clear plastic preferred). - A fabric measuring tape, and a French curve (not required). - Please also wear a close-fitting tee shirt or tank top and, if applicable, your favorite bra. If you need to purchase any supplies or forget them at home, you can purchase them at the shop for a 10% discount. *Cancellation Policy* You must cancel your class reservation at least 72 hours in advance in order to receive a full refund. Classes cancelled after the 72 hour limit has passed will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis, either by partial refund or by rescheduling. About the teacher: Ilah Jarvis is a watercolor artist, nutritionist, and fiber arts instructor. She has been teaching group classes around the Bay Area since the late 1990s, and is a very patient teacher who wants her students to feel successful and develop their own styles of working.
