  • Take and chart your measurements
  • Find the right pattern size
  • Check the pattern vs. your body before you start
  • Establish your preferred fit

Sew clothes that fit and flatter... and look like a million. Conquer the details that contribute to a beautifully fitting garment that you’ll be proud to wear, these fundamentals will enhance everything you sew from now on:

  • Get the right shoulder slope and how to make adjustments
  • Determine how a garment hangs
  • Shape your garment using darts
  • Fit the circumference
  • Learn how to true seams

Learn how to use a croquis sketch, a camera, your dress form, and test garments to refine your sewing and achieve the most flattering fit.
