This time will include drafting the fit block on paper and making a cloth toile of the fit block to enable you to make any adjustments. I will show you how to make these adjustments, it is good if you have someone to help you with the initial…

Claire is a brilliant teacher, this was my second lesson with her and she exceeded my expectations again! She patiently took me through step-by-step (online learning is not a barrier!), and answered all my questions. Now I have my own fit block and the confidence to make my own patterns fit me. Looking forward to seeing what she offers next!
