Overview

Take your fitting confidence and skills to the next level with new techniques from fashion designer Joi Mahon. Start with pattern-fitting basics: refining your pattern for a custom fit in the torso and lower body and truing up your side seams for easy sewing and expert results. Fitting ease and design ease are easy with Joi's guidance for adding both to your patterns for superior comfort and style. Next, go step-by-step through a demonstration of muslin-fitting and contouring your garments so you can ensure that your final fit will be stellar. Joi will even end sleeve-fitting stress as she teaches you to address specific sleeve-fitting issues, quickly draft your own sleeve pattern and more!
