This is the day Judy shares something exciting with her sewing friends. Known as The Fit Doctor, Judy will spend the day administering to you -- dosing you with a new enthusiasm for sewing clothes you’ll love to wear, as she diagnoses and treats the causes of your diminished enthusiasm about sewing for yourself: fit (or lack thereof).
This is not about making a sloper for precision tailoring -- this is a day dedicated to easy fit and how to create and design the kind of clothes we wear every day. Beginning with a discussion of issues most of us face when fitting tops and pants, and an exploration about ways to solve them, Judy includes a trunk show of examples -- tops and pants which reveal her simple, easy approach, and plant the seeds of confidence and inspiration. Plus, plenty of time for Q & A.
Perhaps the most important part of the day is when Judy measures each student. She draws the solution(s) on a miniature pattern, simple to recreate on your own patterns at home. Fitting issues are discovered, discussed and solved -- right then and there!
While others are being measured, you might want to observe and learn about all kinds of fitting solutions. Or you might peruse Judy’s garment collection, even try them on (there will be a full-length mirror available) and even, if you bring your camera, take pictures of your favorite styles and colors. End the day with creative design tricks and a quick look at how Judy’s basic patterns can be transformed into a wardrobe of wearable, comfortable and attractive clothes.
