Focus on FIT Learning the art of fit is imperative for successful garment sewing, and it’s my personal specialty as a teacher. Learn the Palmer/Pletsch Tissue-Fitting Method using any commercial pattern. If you have sewn and struggled with fit, this track is for you. I know you will LOVE the results. I recommend all my fit students start with Palmer/Pletsch for McCall’s pattern 6750 or 7575 — both great blouses for learning fit. In general, it takes a student about 6-10 hours to trim the pattern, pin fit, alter the tissue, cut from fabric, and do the first fabric fitting. Then you complete the sewing at home or join one of our Open Sewing days! Just think that altering your pattern will take you about 1/3 of your total project time. Like everything, you get faster and better as you practice.
