Class, Adjust a Pattern to Your Size with Irene Mischkinis

July 29, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Friday, July 29, 10am – 4pm


Location:  ABQ Sewing Studio, 15 Centre St. W., Strathroy, Ontario

Registration: Follow the link (under Details below) to purchase this class online OR download the registration form to purchase via phone or in person.

Supplies available at the ABQ Sewing Studio

Discouraged by the fit you are getting in ready-made or in patterns you have made for yourself?  Did you know next to nobody fits the standard sizes?  Learn how to adjust to your fit.  Bring your existing pattern or pick out one here and Irene will help you get a perfect fit.  This class is a full day so bring along fabric to cut your pattern from and you’ll get started on your new garment.  Remember we also have an Open Sew class the first Thursday of each month where Irene will help you finish your garment should you not finish in this class.

For the class you will need:

  • A roll of thin vellum paper to draft your pattern changes
  • pencil
  • Fabric as per pattern or more, depending on what you plan to make*
  • Polyester thread to match your fabric
  • Appropriate needle for your sewing machine
  • Sewing kit**
  • Sewing machine (and serger if you have one) in good working order

*Fabric should be pretreated (washed and dried in the manner that you will be treating the finished garment)

N.B.  Please wear a camisole or some other close-fitting garment to class – fitting a t-shirt over bulky clothing just doesn’t work.

**Sewing kit

  • Good quality pins (longer ones with glass heads are the easiest to handle) in a container that allows for easy access or in a pincushion
  • Sharp cutting shears
  • Small scissors or snips for thread
  • Measuring tape
  • Sewing gauge or small ruler
  • Hand-sewing needles
  • Marking pencils or chalk that will work with the fabric you are using for your class project
  • Seam ripper
