Fit Clinic with Lynda Maynard

Tuesday, April 29, 6:30-9:30

How many of you have made garments that are hanging in your closet because they don't fit properly? This class is a wonderful opportunity to bring in muslin mock-ups and have Lynda fit them and help you alter the pattern accordingly. You will leave with one or two "needle ready" patterns and the knowledge to continue adjusting your own patterns. We will also discuss line and proportion related to various figure types.

Learn the fine art of couture sewing from couturiere Susan Khalje. Six intensive days are devoted to creating your own one-of-a-kind couture garment, which can be evening wear, sophisticated day wear or even a wedding gown. During your session, you plan, buy the fabric for and sew your creation. You incorporate into your project the couture techniques and details that go into Susan's exquisite gowns. Special attention is given to hand-sewing techniques and the inner structure and engineering that are the essential components of fine garments. One evening will be devoted to a discussion of business practices. Professional dressmakers and others with solid sewing skills benefit from this excellent course and from the interaction and camaraderie of working with fellow skilled sewers. The class will be small to allow for individual attention. There is a thirty-day cancellation policy; the fee is $50.
