Monday 4:00pm – Wednesday 4:45pm      Small fitting ‘tweaks’ can take an average garment and elevate it to one with superior comfort and style – the one you’d like to wear every single day. Working in small increments and with a clear vision as to how to enhance the silhouette, Cynthia brings her personalized fitting clinic to you. Get a masterful dose of the finer points of fitting as they relate to comfort, function and fashion – all the while working with the patterns of your choice. Most every garment can benefit from small, incremental changes that make all the difference in how you look and feel in your clothes. Bring three patterns that have been altered to the best of your ability, and the mock-up for each. Your progress in class will be substantial, whether you arrive with mock-ups that are close-to-perfectly fitted or require attention to bigger issues. Depending on your own starting point and the speed at which you work, you may be able to refine all three looks – enough to create a wardrobe of graceful, flattering clothes for any lifestyle. The bonus is how much you’ll learn as you see others’ fitting sessions, from which you will gain a deeper understanding of how to identify and correct fitting issues, and where to refine them just one more time…to perfection. 

 

Cynthia will be in touch with each student shortly after you register, to discuss your patterns and correct preparation for class so you arrive prepared to get the most out of your time together.
