I have been working on my personal pattern slopers or pattern blocks starting with the bodice moulage. I want my clothes to fit well and I think the best way to do that is with custom patterns.
Oh, dear, all is quiet on the blogging front lately. My apologies. I hope to be back up and predictable now. This coming right after I was hoping to go to three posts a week. :)
I am not quite sure how I was first introduced to Craftsy. I believe it was through a Joanns promotional email, but I believe it was the Boyer sisters who actually got me started with Craftsy.
Craftsy has both free and paid classes. The free classes are usually shorter, but packed with valuable information. All their classes can be watched at any time and as many times as you like.
I have taken a paid class through Craftsy, Tailoring Ready-to-wear: the Jacket. This class by Angela Wolf gave me many techniques for altering the fit of ready-to-wear clothes or altering the fit of clothes I am currently sewing and can't alter the pattern pieces because the piece is already cut out. As an example, I recently made a tailored jacket using a black corduroy. Now I was naughty and didn't make a muslin toile before I cut out my fashion fabric. The fit on this jacket is very fitted, so I was able to use the techniques from the class to be able to get a looser fit.
Sarah loves to sew, learn more about sewing, and create items with a vintage flair. Her arch enemy is clipping curves, and she has a tolerable relationship with the seam ripper.
