Join us for an afternoon ‘lecture style’ presentation on the most common fit issues in dress making. If you would like to learn how to identify the problem area and manipulate a sewing pattern to fit your own body type, this could be for you!

Take your sewing top the next level and achieve a much better fit with these techniques.

In this session we will be covering how to identify and tackle:

·         Full Bust Adjustment

·         Small Bust Adjustment

·         Sway Back Adjustment – for tops and dresses

·         Lengthening and Shortening (including Trouser Rise)

·         Broad and Narrow Back Adjustments

·         Q&A

The presentation will start at 2:30pm with a short interval, and there will be chance for a Q&A session at the end should anyone wish to ask anything specific or give examples of clothing they are struggling with.

(Please note – we will not be covering trouser fitting in depth during this class as this is a large topic and will be covered at a later date).

Tickets are £10 for non-members and £9 for Norwich Sewcials membership holders.

We hope you will join us and find this of use!

You will need to bring:
-Notebook and pen

-Any items you may wish to demonstrate your issues for the Q&A

The Willow Centre offers substantial free parking, toilets, changing rooms, kitchen facilities, and disabled facilities and access.
