Webinar: Pant Fit Workshop

Webinar: Pant Fit Workshop

Monday, November 30, 2020, 11 am PT

This webinar is a Pant Fit Workshop and is designed for those who have taken the Pants, Pants – Measuring and Working Towards a Better Fit webinar recently, either as part of this series, or earlier in April 2020 (as the content was updated at that time).  In advance of our meeting, participants will complete a Fit Analysis worksheet, then, draft a pattern in Garment Designer and sew a muslin using the knowledge gained in the first webinar. Then during this Fit Workshop webinar, fit problems and resolutions will be discussed. They will also be asked to take a front, back, and side view photo of their muslin pant to submit in advance if they want feedback.
Registration for this webinar is limited due to the nature of the workshop format.

** Lorraine Henry, inventor of the Measuring Made Easy tape, and fit expert will join us in this webinar to provide additional opinion.

If fitting pants is your challenge, this webinar will help you learn how to measure your body, and your favorite pants to assist you in creating a pattern, muslin, and ultimately, pants that fit. Analyze your figure and your fit-challenges to define the problems you face. Then, learn how to use the right sequence of steps in Garment Designer to build the pattern you need. Lastly, learn how to construct a flexible sample muslin that will allow you to test the fit. This is the first step to reducing the mystery and challenges of fitting pants and allow you to get closer to your perfect fit.

This webinar is a natural follow-through from the Approaches to Copying Ready-to-Wear webinar. If you would like to try your hand at analyzing a style and creating a pattern for yourself, here is your chance. Susan will provide some sample garment images from Pinterest, or you can choose your own (please send us the image to ‘approve’). You will take the knowledge learned in the first webinar and apply it. Then, email your Garment Designer file and the image to Susan in advance, and we will spend the webinar going through a critique with everyone’s garments. There is nothing better than learning by sharing. Susan will comment on each participant’s project, and if applicable, make suggestions for change. In the end, you will be much more adept at how to analyze a garment picture and turn it into your own personal pattern.

We suggest keeping this first attempt somewhat simple.
