Simplified Bodice Fitting

Simplified Bodice Fitting


Do you struggle to get a decent fit when using commercial patterns, do you find darts and measuring confusing?
We will go through reading a pattern, looking at grainlines, how to lay out, bust adjustments and work on a basic fitted bodice toile that you can use as a guide to get a better fit with future patterns.
