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

We will go through reading a pattern, looking at grainlines, how to lay out, bust adjustments, dart placement, length and work on a basic fitted bodice toile that you can use as a guide to get a better fit with future patterns.
