This was my first class with Janice. I am so glad I took this class as I have always had trouble with RTW fitting me properly. I have sewed for years and now patterns do not fit me and it was exhausting trying to find the fit for ME. Janice explained the tissue-fitting method and showed me the various changes needed for the perfect fit for ME.
I have now made two t-shirts that look good and address my particular body measurements. And, now I am learning how to make changes to this template to make other garments.
Thank you Janice

The Fit and Sew Knit workshop was just what I was looking for and gave me comprehensive information I needed to understand how to alter a pattern to get a better fit for my body measurements. I have been frustrated with the fit of garments I’ve been sewing for awhile. Despite making tweaks to a pattern I wasn’t happy with how they fit my body — either the shoulders were not wide enough or the back was too tight, etc, etc.. I now have a custom fit T-shirt and pattern that I can use as a template to design new styles. The Knits for Real People book, received with the workshop, is a valuable resource packed with easy to follow techniques, illustrations and tips. I highly recommend the workshop to sewers who want a better fit garment and sew with knit fabrics. Janice’s guidance and knowledge made the class fun and easy to learn.
