Connie Crawford - Fitting the Mature Bodice
I signed up for this class at Fabricland in March. The class was today and it was an education. Connie is truly a teacher and a patternmaker. She taught the importance of balance in the side seam and shoulder. Lots of information and great handouts. She encourages the class to listen and not to bother with taking notes because the handouts material has all the information.
She brought a rack full of garments she made from her pattern line, this way the class was able to look at each garment up close. She had several of her patterns pin and ready to fit and she fitted several ladies in the class. The fit was perfect.
She instructed the class to buy dress and blouse patterns based on your bust measurement instead of your high bust measurement.......? Anyway I am going to give her patterns a try.
