Do you struggle to know how to measure yourself and which measurements to take or how to adjust your pattern for fitting modifications? This class is for you! 

In this advanced beginner class, Aaronica will give you an intro to some of the most common pattern fitting and sizing questions. We'll go through working with your personal measurements to determine what size(s) you should be looking at based on both the size chart and the finished garment measurements of a pattern. Aaronica will help you determine what fitting adjustments you'd need to make and then give a brief overview of how to tackle some of the most common adjustments such as lengthening and shortening, doing a full or small bust adjustment and flat or full bottom adjustments. 

Skills you will learn:

  • How to take your own measurements and which measurements to take and why
  • Using your measurements as a starting point for choosing your size
  • Considerations to make when you're between sizes
  • How to know what pattern adjustments you might need to make
  • Understanding size chart vs. finished garment measurements 
  • Understanding ease
  • Grading between multiple sizes
  • Pinpointing where you should shorten/lengthen your pattern
  • Overview of common fitting adjustments.
