These shorts are the perfect project for Newbies to pant-fitting! Because we will focus on the fit between the waist and hip, it is much easier to get a comfortable and flattering garment.

Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 7 days following the event.

If you want to try your hand at pants-fitting, but you’ve been hesitant… shorts are the way to go! And Jenn’s pattern for Shorts for EveryBody helps you make quick work of the process. High full hip? Low full hip? You’re covered.

After fitting the pattern in class during the first weekend, you can even sign up for a bonus private zoom fitting session with Jenn to focus on your unique fitting issues.

Then during the second weekend, you’ll transfer the final adjustments from your fit muslin to your paper pattern pieces. Jenn will demonstrate the major construction steps for putting your shorts together, and you’ll be ready to sew shorts that fit you in your favorite fabrics. And you’ll have a real head start on making adjustments for full-length pants patterns

Excellent Class Shorts for EveryBody

This is an excellent class. Jennifer Stern is a very thorough and patient instructor. She went above and beyond to assure that each student had a very good fit before beginning on construction techniques. Each one of us left the class feeling like we had accomplished the project. I highly recommend Jennifer as a teacher.

Shorts and Pants that really do fit every body

Great class! Very empowering as we customized our shorts pattern using a fit muslin to end up with something that fit and was comfortable.
