Join us in this 3-session workshop to make your Victorian Bodice, a custom-fitted-to-you garment. This class is designed to teach and assist you in customizing the pattern prior to cutting into fashion fabric, and in constructing your garment.
The prerequisite for this class is that you bring your own sewing machine, and that you have garment making experience.
We will be using Truly Victorian patter #462 – 1883 Tail Bodice. You may purchase the pattern at the discounted-for-SITU cost. This purchase can be made during your one-on-one meeting, if desired. SITU receives a discount from Truly Victorian and we make the pattern available to you at cost.
