Do you struggle to get a decent fit when using commercial patterns, do you find darts and measuring confusing? In this day workshop, learn how to understand and adjust a basic bodice pattern to really fit!
We will take a paper pattern basic bodice and adjust for a personal fit so you will have a guide bodice to use against any paper pattern going forward.
What You Will Learn in this Workshop
