PANT FITTING RETREAT

 
VENUE:  WINTER PARK, FL
DATES: CLASS IS NOW CLOSED February 2 - 4, 2018
 
Every woman needs pants in her wardrobe. She especially wants pants that are really comfortable!
And she wants them in a fabric that suits her lifestyle and her climate.
So, what if pants like that were easy to fit and sew? That's what you'll find at this Pant-Fitting Retreat with Louise and Sandy.
You'll learn how to measure yourself properly, how to select the proper size, and how to make any alterations you need.
You'll be guided step-by-step in sewing your pants for the most polished result, and you'll see all the design details that can be added once you've mastered the basics of your own fit and style.
All our pant styles have an "industry standard" elastic waistband, cut in one with the pant itself. The draft of the patterns is unique, making them fit without troublesome multiple adjustments.
What's more, these pants can be appropriate for just about any occasion when you want to wear them, depending on the fabric you've chosen and what you pair them with.
You'll have an opportunity to shop in the Cutting Line Designs "warehouse", where you'll see a wide variety of fabrics that can make your pants especially right for you.
Get a head start on incorporating pants into your wardrobe for every season and every occasion!

JACKET FITTING RETREAT

 
VENUE:  ORLANDO, FL
DATES:  AUGUST 24 - 26
In this retreat, we will work with the jacket from By Popular Demand.
It is an extremely versatile pattern, lending itself to many variations.
Our first priority is fitting the pattern for each student.
Then we will move on to practicing sewing techniques that can be applied not only to this jacket but to many other garments as well.
We'll also cover many style variations: we have made vests, shirts, and coats from this pattern in addition to many jackets from sporty to dressy.
You will not have time to completely finish a jacket in the class, but you will have gained the knowledge to make many beautifully finished jackets when you get home.
If you are interested in attending, please email Sandy@CuttingLineDesigns.com for a registration form.
