Garment Lab: Woven Essentials by Alison Glass

This series is based on the Woven Essentials pattern by Alison Glass and will focus on the essentials of pattern fitting: taking measurements, selecting the right pattern size, making and using a muslin to customize fit, transferring changes in your muslin to the pattern, basic construction techniques.

Summer dates are 7/8, 7/22, 8/12 and 8/26, 10 am to noon

Students can choose what to learn and focus on, selecting from the following list of topics:

  • Taking your measurements and using them to select the proper pattern size or to blend sizes.
  • How to make a muslin, what markings you should make on the muslin as you’re sewing it, what fit changes you might make to the pattern tissue before making your muslin.
  • Fitting the muslin and transferring the fit changes back to the paper pattern.
  • Making full bust adjustments or small bust adjustments. (The pattern is made for a B cup)
  • How to lengthen or shorten various areas for better fit. For example, bust dart placement, waistline placement, neckline and shoulder adjustments.
  • Basic construction techniques such as sewing and pressing darts so they don’t get ‘pointy’, understitching, inserting a zipper into a dress with a facing, setting in sleeves, and more! If there's something you want to learn about that is not on the list, let us know.
