Description

Whether you plan to knit, crochet, weave, or sew a garment for yourself (or anyone else), the first step is determining the unique size, shape and proportion of the body you wish to clothe. Like snowflakes, none of us are exactly alike, and not until we assess our actual dimensions can we begin to achieve the goal of perfect fit! Cal will show you how to properly take your measurements and use them to draft a sloper (simple pattern) for your personal fit profile. Think of it like a life-size schematic, which you can refer to as you knit from a pattern, or while designing your own! We will also discuss the concept of ease, both positive and negative, and how it affects the end result. Understanding and taking control of these elements will allow you to create pieces that fit and flatter YOU.

Skills that can be applied immediately

Cal is an experienced teacher, using calmness and patience as a hallmark of her teaching style. I wish I had taken this class years ago! I immediately ordered a pattern recommended by a classmate (for her beautiful vintage skirt) and of course it was not my size. But, not to worry, I now have confidence to apply my new skills and create a garment that will really fit my body. Hurray!
