Solve the Mystery of Fit!  with Daryl Lancaster February 12 Virtual 2-2/12 hours starting at 10 AM MST.

Do you know the difference between design ease and wearing ease or semi- fitted and
very loose fitting garments (about 10″)? Did you know that commercial pattern companies and ready-to-wear designers don’t use the same industry standard measurements?
The mystery behind fitting and altering patterns is unfolded right before your eyes! A
lengthy discussion on using commercial patterns, taking proper measurements, grading
techniques, ease requirements and a tutorial on draping are all part of the agenda. A
must for anyone interested in sewing garments.

Deposit of $40 will be accepted at the December meeting or can be mailed to Betz Frederick. Final cost of workshop will be between $40-60. If you have any questions, email Betz at

Cost will be between $100 and $150 for members, depending upon enrollment (an additional $30 for non-members). There is no materials fee and Suzi will supply some assorted smaller pieces of ethnic textiles that can be used for bands, cuffs, pockets or yokes.

buy from a nearby fabric store. Limited to 10 participants
