This class is designed to teach you the basics of fitting a bodice while crating a cute pop-over top. We will use the top from pattern Simplicity S9130. You have the choice of sleeve lengths and a stand up collar or simple neck binding. This top even gives you the opportunity to use some of those decorative stitches on your machine if you like!
Skills learned include taking measurements, fitting a tissue pattern to your body, and making alterations. We’ll discuss different seam finishes, along with cutting and construction tips and tricks. We’ll also discuss how to easily change up this base pattern with different sleeve and neckline styles to make many different looks.
This class is part of my Core Four series of essential wardrobe builders. Along with a knit T-shirt, woven drawstring pants, and knit pencil pants, these four classes provide the basics for any me-made wardrobe. These base patterns provide endless opportunities for customizing to create different styles and features. All that’s needed is your sewing machine, some basic skills and a little inspiration. Come have fun!*In order to get accurate measurements and fit the tissue, please wear a snug tee shirt to the first class. Please read the supply list carefully. Homework is Required.
