Learn to correct the most common bodice fit challenges using logical, straightforward methods that WORK for the home sewist.
Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 14 days following the event.
Every garment sewist has fit challenges! Broad or narrow back, full or small chest, sway back, forward shoulders, round back, round tummy… all of these are very common.
