Slight change to extend the list of live sessions and also added links to previous recordings for easy access!

Live Sessions

I am so excited to announce a new program of live sessions that I will be delivering through the Sew Much More Fun facebook page - Tuesday Techniques.

The sessions will run every Tuesday at 13.30 GMT for around 45 mins and will cover a technical topic to help you develop your dressmaking skills.

Initial Topics - Sewing pattern adjustments

The program will focus initially on how to use commercial sewing patterns and how to adjust them to fit our beautiful, real bodies.

There are lots of benefits to using sewing patterns including:

  • There are a wide variety of styles to choose from

  • They include all the pattern elements, such as facings, that you'll need

  • Many patterns include different design options

  • They include instructions on the order in which to make the garment

  • They provide recommendations on what fabrics will work best and how much you will need

  • Other people have often already made the pattern so you can get a sense of how it might turn out

But the one big drawback is that they are designed for a 'standard' set of sizes based on a body with very specific proportions. If you don't have those same proportions then it is likely you will want to make some adjustments to the pattern to get it to fit.

So to kick off this series of live sessions I'm going to be covering some of the tips and tricks I've discovered through years of working with different patterns and some common fitting adjustments that I have used and helped others to use to customise the patterns for our beautiful, unique bodies.
