Space is limited so PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Call or come to the store to register. 541-345-2100

Pati Palmer and Marta Alto, co-authors of The Palmer/Pletsch Complete Guide to Fitting, will show you how to buy the right size pattern and explain tissue-fitting, a method they began developing during the 1970s and have perfected with hands-on teaching and training of teachers and consumers from around the world. Marta will measure Pati for size.

Then Marta will show what can get in the way of accuracy when measuring for size by trying on bodice muslins: a bodice based on her full bust measurement; one made from the size she uses unaltered, then that size altered. 

Pati will explain tissue-fitting and preparing the pattern showing a prepared unaltered pattern. She will also talk about the need to also pin-fit fabric by trying on a sample pinned jacket. Marta will try on a tissue that has been altered for her. Pati will tell you what the unaltered tissue told her while walking you through the correct fitting order.

Shirts are a great way to learn to fit. Marta will teach you how to use fusible interfacings on shirts and other garments.
